ASSEMBLY

Place the mouse body flat in front of you, right side facing, with long end of yarn at the bottom center of the circle.  Use the long end of yarn as a guide to where the center fold will be on the body of the mouse.

Tie the two ears onto the top of the body of the mouse under the last round of single crochets on opposite sides of the center fold. Space the ears seven stitches apart.

Trim yarn ends leaving the long end on the body of the mouse and the long end on the right ear in place. The long end on the right ear will become the tail of the mouse.

Finishing: Sprinkle in a bit of catnip or tuck in a small half moon of wax paper for kitty to crinkle. Thread the long end of yarn on the body of the mouse onto your tapestry needle. Fold the circle in half, ears on opposite sides, leave the tail to dangle. Whip stitch the edges together. Tie off, weave in end. Trim tail to desired length.

  34. On the heels of Andy Dalton's epic stinker against the Browns, the Bengals aren't giving up on their embattled franchise quarterback.


    Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson on Friday accepted plenty of blame for a performance that saw Dalton tie a career low in completions (10) and suffer his worst outing in terms of completion percentage (30.3) and passer rating (2.0).

    "I'm joined at the hip with him. I understand that's the way it goes," said Jackson, per ESPN.com's Coley Nike Roshe Run Harvey. "I have not run from that. As he gets killed, I get killed. That's the way it goes. That's part of the business.

    "But I don't want us to think we're going to have Nike Free Run an issue with Andy. We're not. We're going to coach Andy. We're going to help Andy get to where he needs to be. That's my job. We're going NFL Jerseys to coach him, continue to get him better, continue to grow."

    Jackson has cheap sale jerseys guided a laundry list of NFL quarterbacks, but he didn't need to dig deep to find the best example of a passer bouncing back from a disastrous start.

    "The wholesale jerseys shop example's him," said Jackson, pointing to Dalton's solid outings in Week 8 and Week 9 after a messy showing Nike Air Max 90 in Cincy's 27-0 loss to the new nike nfl jerseys Colts in Week 7.

    We don't doubt that Dalton will correct some of the flaws that plagued him against the Browns, but Bengals fans can't be blamed for feeling a wave of unease over the play of their franchise quarterback.

    Instead of making the leap some predicted under Jackson, NFL Jerseys Store it's more of the same from a signal-caller known for turning out his ugliest handiwork when the spotlight burns brightest.
