My Forgotten Doll

So many yeas ago that I don't even remember when or where I took a class to make this doll. To the best of my recollection, the head, shoes and socks were furnished and we made the body in class. I brought home a naked doll and put it aside and with so many moves, forgot all about it. I was cleaning a trunk full of old needlework before our last move and there she was!
I had mentioned to several people about her and how I wanted to dress her in a prairie dress. My friend Arlene offered to drive me to Dolls and Cradles and there was the perfect dress with cap on sale for $5.00! Finally she is all ready and pretty sitting on our bedroom chair! I think she needs a little doll to hold!

Linen stitch scarf

The first linen stitch scarf that I have knitted using three different skeins of fingering weight yarn. I used "Claudia's Hand Painted Yarns" which is 100% merino wool. I just love the way it turned out. It blocked beautifully. A gift to Mary for her birthday.
