I mean in a making lots of stuff kind of way not a sneaky spy. She makes loads and loads of different things from slippers to tiny little elephants.....no really, she made a tiny little knitted elephant!
She got involved in a wonderful idea to raise money for the Alzheimer`s Society and also break a world record at the same time.
The idea is to get people to knit 7600 mice and then join them nose to tail to try and make....you guessed it! A mile of mice! Knitters can be sponsored to make them and then once they are done they will be auctioned off to raise funds for the Alzheimer`s Society! Brilliant!
So I can see a lot of confused faces out there reading this post thinking "so why is this running guy talking about knitting?!" well as I mentioned my Mother is crafty...hmm maybe like a sneaky spy after all and gave me a knitted mouse with an idea in mind.
From now till October when the Mile of Mice will be measured I shall be taking my new running buddy with me to see how many miles we can clock up to try and raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer`s Society!
Without further ado I present to you.......Milo! (Thanks for the name Dad! Genius!)
