Toerag the Tube Mouse

A while back I knitted Cooey the Pigeon from Lauren O’Farrell’s marvelous book Stitch London. We’ve been watching a BBC series on the London Underground which inspired me to knit another of Lauren’s little critters, this time an antipodean cousin to Toerag the Tube Mouse.

I actually had a small amount of Morris Estate yarn in a grey brown colour called “Mouse”, which would have been delightfully appropriate, but I wasn’t sure I quite had enough so I knit Toerag in some other Morris Estate colours, pale grey “Building” and pink “Tulle”.

I might take Toerag for a ride on a Melbourne Metro train when I go back to work next week.
