Is it for me or for Ryan? Right at this moment its hard to tell. I'm kind of smitten.... Although, when Ryan saw the finished product last night her reaction made me lean towards actually giving it to its intended recipient. She had snuck out of her room during bedtime with Daddy and saw it sitting on the sofa table. Her eyes got really big and she said, ' Wow! Look at this!' And then she looked at me and said, 'Did you make this?' and gave her a big hug. Can you blame her, look at how cute she is?
I found the pattern for her free online. I deviated only a little. The yarn I used was Lion's Brand worsted weight which is a little thicker than what is recommended so I used bigger hooks as well; 4.25mm for the doll itself and 5mm for her dress and shoes. I've been working on it off and on since Christmas and she was well worth it. I love her!
