While I'm not that much of a rocker, I loved the idea of knitting dolls.  So, I used the Knit Your Own Rock Star pattern and made a Luna Lovegood (from the Harry Potter books) doll.  She turned out so cool that I decided to make a Harry Potter one (he turned out not as good... for some reason his head perpetually stares to the right!!).  I haven't made anymore because Harry was such a bear to knit, but here they are!   Grin   Questions/comments are always appreciated.

Haha those are too cute! Someday I might have to try to knit a doll. Is it terribly difficult? I'm really not that much of an experienced knitter, the biggest project I've done is that Accidentally on Purpose top in SNBN.

Thanks! And no, it's not too difficult.  I did the Joan Jett version of the pattern, and the hardest thing is picking up stitches around the body to create the head.  (I think that's how Harry's head got messed up.)  It's lots of fun, you should try it!

Oh gina, those are great! (applause) I adapted the heck out of the rock star patterns--made Henry Rollins into The Rock for my boss, and turned Joey Ramone into Bob Marley for my best friend and Clay Aiken for myself!  Cheesy

rightnow, I was a little nervous too because I wasn't very experienced either at the time, but they all turned out nicely. gina is right, I also think picking up for the head is the trickiest part, but it is definitely doable.

Haha, I'm guessing by "rightnow", you meant me? Okay, so I think once I finish my current projects I'll try this, but it'll take me a while because my cousin told us she was pregnant, so I started 1 blanket, and now she's having twins, so that means another blanket.
