A Doll

Postby manda-r » Wed Mar 09, 2011 11:28 am

I've bit the bullet and I'm making this for my dd's 8th birthday next month. Soon she will be too old for dolls and I have wanted to make it since the pattern was listed in October the yarn arrived yesteday and I cast on straight away.

Oh what a cute little dolly she is.
Hope you manage to get some yarn for her hair.

Lovely doll, can't wait to see yours. I've some Gypsy in chocolate brown or a lighter brown, I think its called truffle, you are welcome to a ball if that would do the job. Its very soft and silky eyelash but its more like mohair when its worked. PM me with your address if you want some.

Thank you for the kind offer Pat but eylash yarn sadly won't work as you need to loop strands through to make hair I've found some 4-ply baby wool that may just work so I'm going to try that before I buy anything. :smile:
