Saving my sanity, one crafty day at a time.

Well, sort of pretty any.  This is a Roxycraft pattern, and my first time trying to knit anything to pattern.  (I am not so good with directions...or authority...) Also first time increasing and decreasing.  Yes, I used to knit only squares.... I think she came out pretty cute though and my two year old loves her.  I cannot crochet to save my soul so I made finger knitting ropes and worked them into flowers for the eyes, I also used vintage buttons for the eyes instead of doll eyes or beads.  I could not find the correct colour yarn for the bill. so made due with my favourite cascade veri in lime.  I also outlined her flippers in the lime yarn. 

I am pretty proud of platy!  I have fond memories of them as a kid in Oz. 

Ready for her closeup!

Well-done! Really cute, and I love the colors. :3

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley
