FO Friday - Dolls

twindolls
exhale deep breathe....

These twins are finally done and I couldn't be happier! Happy to be done and happy how they turned out!

Dolls are my favorite to knit. I love to see how they turn out. While knitting them I really have no clue how they will look when finished. Each doll is unique and has it's own personality. Even these two. They may look identical, but there are subtle differences. These twin dolls are going to cousins. Their Aunt who commissioned them wanted them alike as the little girls would fight over them if they were different. I'm hoping they love them to pieces.

I'm composing a post of why I started doll knitting. They have become my favorite to knit. My Mom was a knitter and over 35 yrs ago she knit a doll for my cousin. 32 years ago my Mom passed away. My cousin still has that doll.  I hadn't seen the doll since my Mom gave it to her, until this past weekend. Getting my thoughts together to write about it.
