Hello Dolly

Here she is. My first knitted Babe. In all of her glory.

My 3yo son has aquired her. He insists on taking her to bed each night and also insisted that she be dressed.

He named her Dolly.

While I was making her up he kept nicking off with her. Love at first sight I think.

I cheated and knitted her on my empisal knitting machine. I wanted the doll not the knitting. I wanted to knit for HER not knit her, get what I mean?

Any way, I have started with my partners's socks from hell - meaning black as the lord of hells hairy ass - the stitches are difficult to see in bright sunlight. I am allready up to the heel from toe up. 60st round with short row heel and toe, planning to have 3/2 ribbing up the leg. My aim is for 2pairs during the Olympics.

Wish me luck.

That is too cute that your son keeps taking her. It must be love. I have been eyeing this book. I think they are sweet!
