All dressed up, with no place to go.

Hi. I'm the new Mattel dress-up doll called Koko. Once upon a time I was a cat with dignity. Now I am a portable mannequin (or should that be cattequin? ), whose sole purpose, apparently, is to showcase Mrs. Peeps' knitting.

The knitters among you will notice that this dressy boa-scarf is made of three of the balls of yarn from the Knitter's Frolic foray. The keen-eyed among you will notice the desperate plea for help in my eyes.

I have to say I prefer Mrs. Peeps' other hobbies, such as cross-stitch and beading, which are produced slowly and painstakingly, and generally aren't wearable when complete...

Don't you look like a Hollywood celebrity with that scarf! You still look so cute and huggable though...:)
Nice scarf & very professional pose. Dose Mrs. Peeps pay you well?

koko - don't worry. I'm working on plans to rescue you! Today, I put in place phase 1 of the plan: sussing out an apartment in the same building as Mrs. Peeps.

I'll be back with further communique about phase 2.

But Koko, you look so chic! Mrs. Peeps is just trying to make sure you look up-to-date on your current fashions.

Wow! I'm impressed that you sit so nicely with it on. Aoife and Lan would have a fit and run around like crazy!

Oh trust me, Mrs. Peeps pays, she really does...

Ms. Blonde One, I truly look forward to Phase 2! Plan on, full steam ahead!
