With wind, snow and ice,
No creatures were stirring except for two mice.
When mice are astir, they do what mice do,
So when we found them again, we had more than a few.

This was a joint project between Meg and myself. We only felted the one dark-brown mouse, and the rest of them we knit a bit tighter than the pattern called for.
