Next up came the head and neck. I smiled the whole time I was making that little nose.
I was aiming for a Scandinavian look, so was a little worried about the alien that appeared to be emerging from my needles.
The eyes were a bit tricky. And embroidery isn't my cup of tea, so the mouth and eyelashes were challenging.
Best not to talk about the two nights it took to attach all that hair. All I will say is the smile I had when making the nose was noticeably absent.
I couldn't leave her in just her tights and t-shirt so I knit her a sweater.
Then I spent a lovely Easter Monday afternoon sitting on our back deck, enjoying the record-breaking warm weather, knitting a little dress to go over the sweater. At one point I looked up from my knitting and noticed my yarn and mug were a perfect match. I promise I did not stage this!
I think she needs a friend, don't you?
