I handspun, dyed and skeined it, and added tiny tags.   I know I have 'sport' weight on the tags, but I think they plumped up after drying into more of a bulky weight for a doll.  They would be more of a sport weight for a Barbie doll.

I will spin the yarn more finely next time.

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

Im such a dummy....

1st thought: OH! Pretty yarn!

2nd thought: Wait, is that a penny? Well thats silly. What would people make with such a small skien of yarn? You cant make anything!

3rd thought... Maybe it's a miniature? (checks title of thread) Oh yeah.. its a miniature  Embarrassed

Thats a sign that its time to go to bed  Grin

I'm not a woman, I'm a force of nature.
