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?
And don’t forget! I’m holding a giveaway for the newest Knit Picks collection, Garter Ridge on Friday! Comment here to sign up!
1. It’s my mom’s name
2. It can be shortened to Allie, Al, etc
3. It can be pronounced the Italian way
4. Why not? 🙂
I vote for Alice too!
So weird that two people suggested the same name.
She is adorable.
Alice it is!
Yay! Mom’ll be so proud! 😉
I think that’s a sign you’ve made a good turtleneck. I always get my head stuck in my turtlenecks. 🙂 Gorgeous clothes! You will have to make her a little chest of drawers or a wardrobe 🙂
