P'tite Mignonne / Miss Cutie just received a glorious surprise in the mail.
You may first need to know that P'tite Mignonne has a far-away twin in my friend Molly's kitty, Lily Bart (oh, the name!). Just as Molly and I share an astounding lot in common, so do our two furry friends.
When Molly made a Kitty Pi bed for Lily, I mentioned to her on Ravelry that I had wanted to adapt the pattern to loom knitting - but that it probably wouldn't happen before months. Molly took pity on poor P'tite Mignonne and thought how unfair it would be that Lily would have her bed while her alter ego would be waiting for so long.
P'tite Mignonne definitely understood that this was a gift meant for her. She made herself comfortable right away and started purring loudly. As I am typing this a couple of hours later, she still hasn't got out of it, and lets out occasional groans of bliss.
Thank you, Molly, for this beautiful gift, and for the love that inspired it. Thanks to you, there are two happy souls in Paris today!
(This also reminds me, I've been meaning forever to show you the loom-knit projects I have made over the past year... but have yet to do so. While I haven't sewn in eons, I may hopefully find a few minutes soon to upload pictures of these for your enjoyment. )
