Wibbly Wobbley Timey Wimey...

This seems like as good a time as any to tackle some of those "that would be cute and fun and I've got the yarn" projects from my Ravelry queue. 

Like the Tardis Mouse:


He was easier to knit than I expected, but in hindsight I should have read through the entire pattern first. It starts with the tail, increases in the round -- then suggests knitting the center portion first and picking up stitches to add the tail later. I was already up to the first white window when I saw that, so I knit the center portion with the white and black sections flat, rejoined in the round for the head decreases and seamed the open part up at the end.

I also didn't like the shaping for the nose. My decreases just didn't look neat no matter how much I fussed with them, so I wound up tinking back and using the same mirrored decreases I would have for a toe.

Those ears, on the other hand, were surprisingly quick and easy. 

I'm linking up to Yarn Along, Tamis Amis, and check out my post later today where I'm giving away a copy of Fifty Shades of Greyhound, the newest book in the Pampered Pets series of cozy mysteries.

Reading the pattern all the way through is something I'm terrible at. I realize that there is something to be gained from reading through and looking at others' notes, but I like forming my own opinion about a pattern and adjusting from there. No matter how you did it, the TARDIS mouse is ADORABLE! Such a fun short project.

When I saw the thumbnail at Patchwork Times, I thought it was a Tardis mouse. Imagine my surprise to find that's exactly what this is! Cute, but leaves just one question...why this particular combination?
