When Bethy was born she was given a handmade knitted doll, named Poppy (Thanks Auntie Tammy). I love Poppy and so does Bethy. Poppy makes me wish I could knit.
There was little time for consideration. I took a quick peek inside and fell in love. This book has a pattern for how to crochet a doll, designs for a multitude of essentials for any doll (like clothing, cakes, teddies, a pet penguin, toy bucket, baskets, shoes, etc), and suggestions for a few different ways to make her hair. Here's a peek at some of what it offers.
I'm excited at the thought of what I could make and a little tense at the thought of how much yarn I am going to want to buy. I guess I'd better drag my yarn box out and see what's in my stash before I buy new stuff.
