I have nearly completed a second babe, so I figured I would join the KAL. Yeah, I tend to procrastinate.  Grin

This is a shot of my Knitted Babe that I made a week or so ago. Her name is Finola because I made her out of some handspun FinnSheep that I spun up over the summer. I modified the Bubble sweater pattern in the book to make her a bolero even though it looks like a poncho thanks to her tiny arms.

It's fashioned with a pin made from a glass bead and a toothpick. She still needs a skirt or some pants but I'm having a hard time finding something that goes with her top.

Her eyes and mouth were needle felted bits of fleece and roving. And I added some Bernat Boa for eyelashes. Her hair is Manos yarn. She even has a tiny felted tote. Overall, I was very pleased with how she turned out.

Thank you for the welcome. I had to knit another because they are so much fun, and basically my mom stole the first one. All I have left to do on babe #2 is hair and clothing. I'm having to customize clothes for them cause I am lazy about gauge and my girls come out different than the ones from the book. Can't wait to see more babes.

Has anyone attempting knitting the babe in the round?  I loathe seaming Smiley  Just curious what the results were.

Well here is babe #2. She is done except she doesn't have shoes yet. For her I used knitpicks merino which worked very well. Her hair is dreaded which was achieved by felting basically a tassel. I then strung 3 or 4 dreads into bunches, then sewed onto her head. Her clothes were completely winged except for her fancy red undies, which are pretty much the pattern in the book, only shorter. Hope you like her.

Sorry for all the pictures, but this girl is just so photogenic Smiley

Here's my version of the Knitted Babe, Alice Full of Malice. She's the only doll my daughter has ever loved... Smiley

betsyjean - The dreads are great!  I was contemplating dreading my next babe, the first one is still in the works she is "Angel"  from Dot Pebbles  When she is finished I will have to post pics then start to work on my dreaded babe.

LOVE these. Must run out and buy the book.  One question...lots of your babe clothes appear to be crocheted...are the clothes patterns all in crochet?  I only knit...(I know I know I should learn...) and I would be sad to only have naked babes running around my house.
