wanna win?

i heard you asking for pics

(i really did, k!)

and today i finally took some.

*

now, you should know

that before patterns

are ‘approved’

at my house

they have to get through

‘quality control’

and i am not

referring to

my own perfectionism here,

although i could be.

*

it has to

pass by the

‘smell check’,

followed by

vigorous

overall

strength testing,

and a rating on the ‘kissable’ scale.

now that this little guy,

(yarn courtesy of taddiebeeknitting),

has scampered through all the ‘required’ hoops,

i am pleased to introduce him,

or is it her,

to you.

so,

which

one of you

is going to name

this tiny creature

(and it’s pattern)?

shall we all have a little contest?

my friend cc thought that might be fun.

anybody wanna give it a try?

i promise a super

prize pack

well, i’ll get back

to finishing the knitting.

you put your thinking caps on

and have at it.

i’m sort of giddy

to see what names you

come up with.

please do enter as many times as you like

by typing a ‘name for the mouse’ in a comment below this

or any other blog post tagged ‘mouse’

(the deadline to enter and pics of the prize can be found here.)

  1. Purlie is my mousey name,
    From gentle hands I now became
    A little creature made of yarn.
    I live at home and not the barn.

    I’ll keep you company, tickle your toes;
    Soften hearts of those you know.
    Please hold me close and I will be
    Your rolly polly friend, “Purlie”.

  2. Could I be a Bobolink?
    A catchy name, don’t you think?
    I’m knit and purled without a tink;
    Those bobble eyes, I’m tickled pink.

    I love to cheese around and play.
    I’m small and stout, but that’s okay.
    I fit in hands, so carry me away.
    Put me in your pocket to play another day.

  3. I’m “Wannabe”, your special friend;
    A mouse with whom you can depend
    On giving you much love and hugs.
    I’ll share with you my cheese and bugs.

    I’m soft and knit with special care,
    In hopes you’ll cuddle me like a bear.
    I’ll aways be close, so you will see,
    How much a friend, I “Wannabe”.

  4. I vote for “Moses.” He was the small instrument that set a nation free, and Aesop speaks of the value of even the smallest friend in the tale below.

    The Lion and the Mouse

    Once when a Lion was asleep a little Mouse began running up and down upon him; this soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him. “Pardon, O King,” cried the little mouse: “forgive me this time, I shall never forget it: who knows but what I may be able to do you a turn some of these days?” The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him, that he lifted up his paw and let him go. Some time after the Lion was caught in a trap, and the hunters who desired to carry him alive to the King, tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on. Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight in which the Lion was, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Beasts. “Was I not right?” said the little Mouse.

    ~ Little friends may prove great friends.

  5. Mrs. Frisby! (From Mrs. Frisby and the Rat of NIMH).

    No….probably copyright would get in the way. I do like the Moses idea though. (My brain is stuck on Mrs. Frisby, because that’s what I named my own and only pet mouse.)

  6. I actually had a rat as a pet, and the runner up name for him was “Askim”…
    My friend suggested the name, when I asked why, her reply was “What’s the rat’s name” …dramatic pause… “Askim” (get it, Ask him)
    It was completely silly, and I plan to give my next pet rat that name, because I love it, so I thought I would share it. I think it would work well for a mouse too ?

  7. I’m little “Tinker”.
    I’m made from Knit and Purl.
    Sometimes I’m a stinker
    But mousely a good girl.

    Take me to a cheesy place
    And I will dance and spin.
    As I’m nibbling, on my face,
    You’ll see a great big grin.

  8. I yearn to be a real live mouse;
    But only can I be
    A little ball of blended yarns
    That make up all of me.

    I guess I need a special name;
    Pinocchio wouldn’t do.
    So, hopefully, you’ll pick for me
    A name like “Mousearoo”

  9. When I was little, I had a mouse
    big and fluffy and white
    I would cuddle it when I was sad
    And it kept away monsters at night.

    That mouse was called the Monster Mouse
    because it was quite a sight
    It was always friendly and nice to me
    but it gave the monsters a fright!

    I still have that mouse, thirty years on
    And it still keeps the monsters at bay
    I hope your little mouse will do the same
    for your kids, and others, some day.

    As for the question, I think this one’s name
    should have a sweet and gentle ring.
    It will still drive the monsters away
    but they won’t suspect a thing.

    Billy the Mouse, or Wee Nibbly Tim,
    or Snuffle or Tommy the Nose…
    Penny Fluffikins or just Miss Penny for short
    or maybe Miss Melanie Mouse?

    Whatever its name, it looks very soft
    and cuddly and friendly and sweet.
    Give it lots of hugs, and kisses and love
    and the occasional treat.

  10. I like my names a little cheesy….

    How about:
    Colby
    Jack
    Victor (after Victor et Berthold, a Quebec cheese)
    Queso
    Maggie (after the italian word formaggio)
    Kaas (cheese in dutch) or Cass
    Macaroni (and cheese? I’m bad at this!)
    Zim (After EZ)

    Good luck! Its adorable :)

  11. ‘name for the mouse’

    With what looks like the beginnings of cables I’m thinking Irish/Scottish like “Finn” or “Doyle”? Or totally cheesy like “Cheddar”. :)

  12. Geppetto is one of my submisssions.

    Squeekers is the other.

    I can see my granchildren scrambling for and snuggling with their Squeekers!
