sometimes i'm in the mood to make something, but i'm also in a lazy mood and want a finished project in a small amount of time, so i like instant gratification ideas. i also like that these types of quick projects keep your basic creating skills sharp. the other day my kitten ripped apart her toy mouse and i found these cute crochet mice at Mollie's Blog Stuff. the tutorial is really easy to follow and my cats love them. i actually made 3 but couldn't find the 3rd because the cats hid it.
