My blogging silence hasn't been in vain. I spent the end of last week out of town at a conference and then the weekend up in the mountains. So I will have some lovely photos of the mountains for you very soon, but first my current knitting thrill - Poppy.
This little cutie isn't quite complete, but even so I am so excited to share her with you. Poppy is yet another fabulous pattern by Ysolda Teague.
This dolly is for a wee one who is scheduled to arrive in this world in a couple short months and I hope she loves it. Well, I mean, I don't expect and infant to get psyched about a doll, but you know, eventually.
As usual with Ysolda's patterns this one is written wonderfully. Easy to follow and a joy to knit. I will mention that the mary janes are explained, but they are easy enough to figure out from her close up shot of the feet.
Obviously she isn't quite complete. Today I will stitch on her dress buttons, give her eyes and a mouth, and I'm going to improvise some little underpants for her.
In short, I highly recommend this doll. I can just imagine a little girl carrying her by the arm everywhere. It is a very fun pattern! Enjoy!
