My Pretty Knitted Babe

Hi all! I'm back after weeks of laziness and procrastination....actually, I needed to find a new type of project to inspire and motivate me once again. I found what I was looking for in a fabulous knitting book called Knitted Babes by Clare Garland. Check out my first doll....

I'm really happy with how she's turning out, considering she is the first knitted doll I've ever tried to make. This is just one side of her. I still have to seam the back and front together, and stuff her. I still don't know what I'm doing about her hairdo...hmmmm, that could end badly if I don't take my time and think things through...but when I get to designing her clothes, she is going to be one fancy lady! Bellow you see a full view of the head and torso....

I am a procrastinator/lazybones at heart, so believe me when i say that I raked myself over the coals to achieve her sweet, detailed little face. She's totally worth it!

see you soon with the finished doll! If this goes over well, she might even end up with a sister or two...or three? Really loving this book so far.
