Far from my home in Colorado lives another little knitted mouse who looks a lot like me. She lives with a very nice family, and is one of the very first knitted Phoebe Mouse dolls ever because her mother was one the test knitters for my mother's knitting picture book. I have to say I was a little nervous about meeting someone else made from the very same pattern as I was, but there is a very nice little girl here who did a very good job of properly introducing us, and got a lovely tea party all ready for us so we could visit and get to know one another!
And my cousin is really such an interesting and wonderful mouse that we became fast friends right away! I soon lost any worry about meeting "another" me, and realized that no matter how many Phoebe Mouse dolls there are, we are all unique and one of a kind, handmade and special!
