Holly and the Wee Mouse

I bought (among many other things) a kit from Sue Stratford at Yarndale. She has many gorgeous and sweet kits. I got the Chunky Holly kit.

I quickly got started and after only a couple of nights work. I have a fabulous chunky holly.


And if you can see her hiding behind the berries, a wee little mouse.


All the materials are included in the kit. The little mouse is made from angora, so she is lovely and fluffy.


One interesting surprise was because of the sewing down the centre of the stuffed leaf, it’s mouldable. The leaves stay in the position that you put them in.


There’s a range of other Christmas based kits too. Including a chunky robin and a Christmas tree tea cosy. If you’re based around Cleethorpes, then you can get your own kit from A Good Yarn or if you are elsewhere in the world, then you can get them directly from Sue Stratford at the Knitting Hut


It has quite an interesting construction that makes them look so good with the centre and side veins. The berries are a bit glittery too. I’m planning on mine having a home centre stage above my mirror in my lounge over the Christmas period.

That’s one project I’ve finished recently. There are literally dozens of others that I haven’t shared but I hope to, so wait for the next instalment.


  1. That is so cute, great idea for Christmas decorations!

  2. Delightful. Every home should have one...
