Fetish and Yarn.... an odd combo?

Well I've started a stall at the local fetish market. The novelty is..... I've knitted and crocheted everything I sell, and for some reason my giant winkie shaped draft excluder which was a good 3 ft long and several inches wide was very popular.
I wanted to do scarves, hats etc with the BDSM emblem on as winter is a commin and could not find a pattern on the whole internet. So for your delight, I designed one with my own lill hands.
The chart on the right is upside down for a reason too, I've not gone tat mad yet.....
It's upside down because when you come to do the second end of a scarf or making a hat top down.... it means you don't have to turn your head upside down to look at it :D

I have come to the conclusion mice are harder than kids.
My Abyssinian Poppy decided to have her babies 4 days early, not a lot you night think but in people terms its two and a half months early.
Not just that....she then decided she didn't like them. Chucking them outta the nest and slamming them up her tanks glass. Somehow I think she should be a bachelorette.
So after being awake for about 42 hours and feeding them every two with the smallest straw I could find, a friend came to the rescue and was able to successfully foster them onto two of her mice. All 6 are doing well!

Abyssinian Meece on the go.

Righto folks, I paired up two of my Abyssinian meeces Thursday, a few tiffs but nothing out of the ordinary. Heres a pic of Poppy and Manuel just in case you don't know what an Abby mouse looks like :D

Oh and I also get bored when left alone so I do things like this (the two v's stand for Vincent Valentine).

Tis bean a while

The suns been shining, I'm better from my cold...... so it's an allotment day! Ok so I was only nipping down to see how things were as tomorrow I'll be fixing the green house with Rob hopeully. And well....things were pants.

Something is secretly naffing all my strawberries, beans are not looking happy, and the cucumber plants are pretty....dead.
On a lighter note....
I have new meeces! I have two fuzzy hairless, a cream and white called Nibble Munch, and a blue tan called Gypsy Belle. PLUS .... my very first show mice! They are a trio of black selfs. Two girls called Willow and Mynx, and a handsome young man called Sargent Woody D'Teabag or just Woody for short. Welcome to the clan guys :D (I'll add a pic of Woody laters ).

Todays Plan.....

Ok so todays plan of action was....
1) Clean out mice
2) Buy buttons for the cardigan I'm making for my niece Felicity aka Flickipoo.
3) Go forth to allotment see if theres strawberries I can munch on, weed and plant out cucumbers as they are already fruiting and currently still reside on my windowsill.
What actually has happened so far......
1) Found a pile of dog sick (thanks Dumpty)
2) William escaped and took two hours to catch from about 7:30 this morning.

William is one of the nicest mice you could ever meet, and out of my 25ish meece he is a favorite, however he is a little s**t for escaping, it was only two days ago it happened last time.
And just in case he wanders of again and happens to go for miles, heres what he looks like:

And just so she doesn't feel left out here's Dumpty: ( And yes she has tissue stuck to her lip, she's odd like that).

Ok mom here we go...

So I went to teach mom to crochet Monday, she can knit but wanted to try. She wanted to make squares- easy.
She wanted to make a granny square - still kinda easy. Except for starting off.
In the end I had a headache, it was a square with 6 rounds to it. We did 2 hours.
She stopped, decided is was a small coaster.
Morals of the story:
1) Insist on doing a square in rows
2) get them a book with really good illustrations.
