These are some of the dolls I have completed lately

Here's another view with attention to the metallic gent on the right


He was a "buy me" pattern from here
http://www.np-trade.de/anleit/e-frei.htm
She also has free patterns, including this fella, who is my next project


I use mainly an F hook and Red heart super saver so most of my dolls come out abouy 18 inches tall....give or take.
Betty is my pattern from the neck through the bottom, Bob is my pattern, he needs to be more rectangalish, the rest are from various pattern books.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

My 14 year old granddaughter has decided to learn to crochet, blankets and hats bore her, but the dolls thrill her and her friends to pieces. Does your highschool have a home ec class? They use to teach sewing, crocheting and cooking. Crocheting is very relaxing and the rewards are unmeasurable. I hope you get the chance to try> I was 26 when I was taught by my mother in law. Good luck and thank you for your compliments

She is a Strawberry Short cake. She lost her hat before the photo shoot. I won about 40 of the heads a couple of years ago on ebay for $5.00 so I've been making the traditionals and playing with different designs like these


This one is the modern Strawberry



I enjoy crocheting more than I ever thought I would. I must be honest though.......I can't remember the last afghan I completed lol...........
