When Mouse first showed up on my hook, I never would have guessed the challenges this little guy would present. You see, Mouse is a knitter. Apparently, a quite good one (well, at least in his own mind). And so, Mouse took it upon himself to teach me how to knit "properly."
This pattern is a first for me: it includes all the crochet goodness you've come to know and love, with the added bonus of my first ever knitting pattern. And for those of you who are squeamish about trying the pointy sticks, Mouse's sweater is written out as a crochet pattern too. Enjoy!

I'm a mom, a wife, a writer, a crocheter, a kisser of boo-boos, and a lover of touchable, colorful art. My daughter, Little Miss, is one of the big reasons I got into amigurimi crochet. After making afghans (and just about everything else) for more than 15 years -- I fell in love with a baby girl and have been making dolls to delight her ever since. She is my muse and my inspiration.
My original amigurumi designs are 100% hand made with the same quality and attention to detail that I would want for my own daughter. And, each stitch I hook in each piece I make holds a story. You'll find some of the stories right in the item listings on my shop -- for instance, did you know that the tooth fairy turns stale gumdrops into colorful mice so people won't accidentally have dental emergencies?
But, it is my hope that my creations' best stories are yet to be unlocked by the people who eventually receive them.
I want to thank you for taking a few minutes to learn a little more about me and my work, and I hope you'll find something in my shop that starts a special story for you.
Best wishes, Karla (The Itsy Bitsy Spider)
