Remembering Alchemy's Visit and Introducing Little Miss the modeling Meerkat

Wonderful reminiscence this morning reading Nifty Knits Blog. It is almost time for the End of the Alchemy Meerkat World Tour and Grand Giveaway. we had such a great time with Alchemy, even dour ol Frank smiled over her love of Maple Syrup. Alchemy loves homemade Maple SyrupActually the man chuckled aloud when he came to breakfast that morning to find Alchemy hugging the Maple Syrup bottle. We all (humans and critters) fell in love with Alchemy during her visit here; realized that life is happier with a meerkat in the family.

We were so bereft after Alchemy left that we put in papers and adopted "Little Miss" one of Nifty Knits baby meerkats.

Meerkats are the most fetching of models and how Little Miss loves to pose. MeerMeFAs

Only 7 inches tall Little Miss really rocks a photo shoot.

To coincide with the Wrap up of Alchemy's World Tour, Little Miss just launched the mini-fascinator line for Meerkats and dolls, and will be adding mini-fascinators every day this week to Glorious Hats on Etsy.

Now even on rainy days we have something to smile about. Thanks Nifty for creating such clever, inspiring knit creatures.


Enjoy!
Jane

Oh how I love the picture of Little Miss gazing up at the giant sized (to her!) fascinator. May this collaboration between us long continue Jane!

Oh Nifty, thanks so for your kind words and thoughts. It is so wonderful to work with "hands across the water" - the world is all at once so large and yet so small.

Jane, I love your trip down memory lane. Alchemy looks like she had so much fun. I think she feels the same way about fresh maple syrup as I do, what a yummy treat :)
