He is Souris’ boyfriend.

I made him a purple cable-knit sweater. I think he looks very debonair in it!

And with this I am done (for now) with kitting adorable little critters from Julie Williams’ patterns. That is subject to change at any time, of course.

I have made the August dresses for Dottie and Inga — can’t forget that:

Two years ago today, My buddy L-B and I took a road trip to West Virginia and returned with this little guy:
