Blog_2014 738 Of all the things I knit, my favorite are dolls. From my very first one, to this one, I fall in love with each one. I think my love of knitted dolls also comes from my Mom knitting dolls for all her nieces. I often wonder if she loved making them too. One of my cousins still has the doll my mom made over 25yrs ago! I hope the dolls I've knit and given are loved and cherished just as much.

I'm currently working on her dress and haven't decided how I want her hair just yet.

Those dolls are beautiful, and now I'm wondering what the hair will look like. Someday I want to knit dolls and maybe a teddy bear, maybe when I finish all the sweaters and socks I have going. Your pictures are wonderful...the light is just perfect.

She is looking so sweet. I love all of the details, especially the laces on the shoes and her eyelashes.

so, so sweet! I can't knit, but yes, I could see how making dolls would be a favorite (A doll has so much more personality than a sweater ;-)
My mother didn't sew a ton, but she made a doll for me when I was 8 and it is one of my most treasured possessions! (here is a post about him if you care to see it. http://pursuingjoy.blogspot.com/2011/12/baby-come-back.html I know my mom expected me to like the doll at the time; I don't think she ever anticipated the place he would hold in my heart, though. I think it's a very real possibility that YOUR dolls could be such a life long treasure, too :-)

I wish you many hours of happy doll knitting ~ Tracy
