These are the two latest in my series of knitted fashion dolls. Pinky and Melissa are inspired by the big eyed, long limbed Asian ball jointed dolls. My daughter told me they had to be as unlike knitted fete fodder as possible. What do you think?

Here is a picture of my finished Minnie doll. Minnie is our chiuhaha (spelling?) and I've always thought she'd be great fun to dress up in pink and with ribbons and bows. Instead I've tried to make a knitted doll version of her.

This is one of my knitted dolls. I've been working on a design that is funky and different to the type of daggy thing you get at fetes. This is a goth girl, probably a vampire. I'm so in love with knitting toys at the moment. The doll at the top is Melanie. Both these dolls were inspired the Asian ball jointed dolls so popular at the moment. I wanted one but couldn't afford it so I decided to make one myself! In wool.
This is my second attempt at having a blog. This time it's all my own! I still bet nobody reads it. Oh well, you can't say I didn't try. I'm giong to put some pictures up of the things I do best.
