Jason here. I recently wrote about a crocheted Caitlin Clark doll made by local fabric artist Millie Peters.

  • And now there's a mini-me in crochet!

Catch up fast: Peters is a longtime reader of our newsletter who has a series of dolls, including some that depict showgirls that dance to music.

  • I was intrigued when she told me she made a Caitlin doll because of her deep admiration for the basketball star.

Driving the news: After the article was published, Peters made a doll of me and mailed it last week as a gift.

  • I didn't ask her to make the artwork, but I very much love it.

Zoom in: My doll is titled "Lil' Jason — Axios writer" and I'm in a winter coat I've worn in multiple, "Where's Jason?" photos.

  • It came with a certificate of authenticity signed by Peters.

🤟 My thought bubble: I've got an amazingly fun gig.
