Cathleen has created a lovely world for little Pippin and his family, and the chief OC is Pippin's knitted piggy, Tulip. But in this story we learn of another Person of the Fabric Persuasion, as Sammy-Lamby comes to join the family. I think the most delightful part of this is how clearly the saying ["like father, like son"] applies to Paladin and Pippin, and how Eglantine loves to indulge both her lads!

Once upon a time little Paladin Took had a knitted lamb friend to rival the friendship little Peregrin knows with his knitted piglet Tulip. So now the story is told of the loss of Sammy Lambie, and Eglantine, busy with knitting a new toy, finds herself wondering which will appreciate it more, her son or the child that lingers within her husband. The love Eglantine has for her husband and son is marvelous, and one can feel her amusement and exasperation at the two of these menfolk in her family. Very sweet story.

*giggles* Now I know why Pips such a cute character. He has it from his father. I really like your Paladin! Well actually I like your whole Took family including their knitted members!
