Smaller Knitted Doll

I made another knitted doll, but this one was just out of boredom... Uh, the first picture of her, as you can see, she is without her poncho/dress. I didn't make her with arms because I thought it gave her more character, plus was too lazy. All in all, I think for a one day project it came out cute, right down to her tiny eyes. :) (About the size of my hand or a little bigger, as you see in the first picture.)

Knit pattern

I was fooling around with my yarn and come up with this cute pattern. Rib stitch and stockinette stitch (I began with the latter).

I wasn't keeping count with how many rows I was doing for each but if you do it just try to keep it about the same for each part (whether you make you rib st longer than mine or not doesn't matter, etc.) because then it wont look as nice.

If I'm not making any sense: let's say I did 10 rows of rib st and then 12 of stockinette st, keep going with the same numbers until you got it to the length you want.

My only set back was not making a border so the sides didn't curl in.

Knitted Doll (fixed)

Remember my very first post of my monkey-lookalike doll? well, I fixed him up. I removed the mouth, darkened his eyes and made new clothes. I think he looks cuter this way. I think I'm going to try my hand at making another one... that should be fun.

Nails 4

I know the picture is pretty bad, but if you look at it from far away (far away!) it shouldn't be too bad.

I painted my nails yet again, this time painting all except my ring finger that deep aqua blue kinda color. My ring finger is white with a heart jewel placed on the side <3
