Ok so I wrote this whole posted and managed to disappear it.

Here is my poppet, Autumn.  I got the pattern for the Halloweenalong but it took me this long because I apparently have no idea what I'm doing.  First doll hehe.  It took me 6 tries to figure out eyelids, all the limbs are a little gimpy because I didn't bother looking up what a ladder stitch was until I attached the head.  I did end up attaching the hair strand by strand because it's so thick it was pretty easy that way.  And I decided with all that hair, a shirt wasn't necessary but I did want to cover up the mess I made of her butt and ladybits.
I was inspired by my own orange cat, Daniel, who I think is in lurve with his new girliekitteh.  Well here are the photos:

She looks kinda sad.  My fiance thinks she looks like a kobold or goblin and wants one of his own now.  I think she kinda looks like a Fraggle.  I love the pattern though, now that I've made one, I think any beyond will be much easier.  And I think I know how to make basic dolls now!!

Oh and here is Autumn and Daniel at their favorite hobby:

Her hair is fantastic!  It reminds me of the broadway show Cats, for some reason.  I've never seen it, either.  Anyway, she's beautiful and you now know how to make way more than a basic doll!  It's quite an undertaking for a beginner.

Visit http://ghilie.wordpress.com/ for the poppet pattern.

OOO I love her, I think she is so pretty especially the hair!! Kinda reminds me of my own when I don't brush it and let it go free  Tongue. My son (1) ran over with a big smile and said "Kitty" and giggled after words. He loves these. Great Job!!

she is beautiful and her locks make her so exotic. She is much cuter than a fraggle. She must be the nymph that kisses that trees so the leaves will change. Good work

You did a great job! I love the yarn that you chose for her hair, and her skirt is darling! I agree with the others here that she is much prettier than a Fraggle.
