I hope this comes out OK.
This is FiFi, which is a kit you can buy from Claire Garland (well, atleast they were on sale in Liberty, London before the book came out)
I knit her last summer and she is great. I keep meaning to finish her slippers though.

OK. I've got the book, and I want to start.  I got the smallest yarn I could find at Michaels (for the body), but it isn't fingering.  How important is the yarn size?  I'll see how this one goes, and if she turns out strangely, she'll just be unique, and I'll know what to tweak in the future.  Smiley

I'll post when I finish.  I'm really overly excited about this doll.

I knit mine with slightly bigger yarn (maybe sportweight or worsted, don't remember). Here's how she turned out:



I stuffed the arms because I wasn't sure about her having tentacles. She was actually finished her months ago; I  have been too lazy since to make her any clothes. Reading this thread has inspired me to get off my butt and make some Smiley

Hehe, yeah, my first reaction when I'd finished sewing the hair on was "hey, it's Tyra Banks as a peanut."

The only thing about knitting with bigger yarn is that the clothes are all going to have to be knit in the same weight or they won't fit.

I also have had a naked babe hanging around for the last month.  I kinda lost the will to make her some clothes after my husband said she looked like Kathy Griffin, and my 1.5 year old took one look at her and threw her to the side...

Here she is lying forlorn on the ground...


Her maryjanes are knit right onto her legs, since I knew that I would never be able to keep shoes on her feet, unless she spent all her time sitting on the shelf.  Hopefully though my daughter will take to her eventually.
