That extra mouse will have to wait for a while though as I am now trying to crank out hats for my new ministry "Hats for the Homeless". I hope to have enough hats by November (that's when it gets cold here) to keep a lot of heads warm. I'm using a very simple pattern knit in the round. Just cast on 60 stitches (I'm using worsted weight wool with a strand of mohair) and then knit for about 8 inches. Then just do your favorite decrease to round off the top. They really work up very fast and the rolled edge looks nice.
We've been doing some painting this week and my FC has added some beaded birch paneling to my desk area. It really looks great. Now I just have to put everything back in order. Well, not everything. I'll try to do some decluttering and get rid of a bunch of bits and pieces. You know how desks get.
