Hello knittahs!

My partner has received today so I can post my recent FO.  I've been dying to post this -- I'm so jazzed how it turned out!  Cool

I found the pattern online; it's from the book Knitted Icons: 25 Celebrity Doll Patterns

Without further ado, here's my version:


Thanks for looking dahlings! MWAH!

I totally forgot to mention her cute bling!  I found the perfect "earrings" for her @ Joann's.  They're buttons.  How spiffo is that?!

You did a great job on this doll.  I have the same book and have knitted all of the doll pieces, but haven't decided which doll to make yet.  Everything is so tempting.

Loves it! I bought this book ages ago but still haven't gotten round to knitting any of them.. I want to modify the Beatles to be the Libertines (pre-crack addict era)
