I finished my doll! She’s got little crocheted ears and a dopey smile (I was trying for a non-dopey smile, but this was the closest I could get). She’s super cute, and sits on my desk. She just needs a name… any recommendations?
And, we (OK, I) did a little fashion show this morning! I didn’t want to start on the doll before the class last weekend, so instead, I made a bunch of clothes while I was waiting.
love this little ensemble. The cardigan is made with vintage mother-of-pearl buttons from my grandmother’s button collection, and I think this skirt is my favorite garment. (I kind of want one for myself). It’s covered with bugs!The next outfit features an oversized color-worked turtleneck and slightly-too-short wide-leg trousers. (Unfortunately, the turtleneck on this one is almost impossible to get over my doll’s head- Oops! Next time, I’ll make the neck with larger needles.)This more fitted sweater has the same problem as the yellow turtleneck (or maybe my doll just has a really big head?), but I really like the touches of Fair Isle around the edges. I might even make myself something similar (but with a big enough neckhole).I’ve got a big bag of yarn in every color of the rainbow (except yellow, because I already used it up- oops!). I think I’ll be making my doll a whole wardrobe! And, since she’s finished now, I can actually make clothes that fit her. Exciting!
What should I make next? What should I call my doll?
