Marcello The Quasi-Mouse

Meet Marcello the quasi-mouse.

Marcello is a shy little fellow.

Or at least he seems shy, but that might just be a product of the fact that he has no mouth.

Still, you'd think that he would at least snort through his nose or something.

Not so secretly, he thinks he looks a bit like the actor Kurt Russell, which is kind of true, but don't tell him that. His head is big enough as it is.

Also, after spending a good chunk of the weekend on Marcello's creation, my fingertips are mostly numb except for my right thumb, which feels like I stabbed the crochet hook right into the bone. This art is born from love, people.

Marcello the quasi-mouse is for sale at my Etsy shop, and he needs a good home, because Onion thinks that he needs a lot of killing. Marcello is none too crazy about the prospect of being torn limb from limb by a cat that's too stupid to figure out how to push doors open with his head.
