Beginning a new doll is always exciting. I have a picture in my head of how I want the doll to look, and hope when I'm done it looks like what I imagined. If the doll is for someone, I think about that person while I'm knitting. I pray they are well. I think happy thoughts, and all those prayers and happy thoughts are knit into the doll also. If I get frustrated while working on the doll, I set it aside. Only happy thoughts are allowed.
The doll I started here is not for a little girl. It's for my aunt in-law. Is there such a thing? I hope when she receives the doll, it takes her back to a happy childhood of doll playing. I feel you are never too old to play with a doll. The little girl in us never dies, she's just waiting for a new doll to come out and play.
