11  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: joey ramone doll! on: January 04, 2006 05:12:51 PM
Well, I think it looks great. If it were perfect, it wouldn't be punk rock.

It's beautiful! I love the orange and you did a really great job with that chart. Hurrah!

You made a Calvin Johnson! Wicked!

I recently made a gaggle of these dolls and the long haired ones are waaay less of a pain than the short haired fellows. All that duplicate stitch -- no thanks! I ended up just kind of pseudo embroidering the short hair on.

So, as an update, here are the four finished dolls. I used a hodge podge of scrap yarn, so they all turned out pretty differently, but they're not supposed to be perfect, right? I present them to my friends tomorrow, so wish me luck!

I agree, I wish she'd written the whole pattern in the round, since you have to know how to use DPNs to do the head anyway. I'm almost finished my fourth doll (to look like my friends) and they are indeed a pain in the arse in many many ways. Still, it's my first toy pattern and now I'm obsessed and ready to try out different, more interesting doll and toys (yes, I have a bunch of Jess Hutch stuff on my to do list).

Either way, you can see my far from perfect KYORS dolls here: http://www.elizaboothy.blogspot.com

I thought that recreating my friends in doll effigy form would be a good (and cheap) idea for Xmas gifts this year. I'm doing four in total (two couples) and here is my first finished doll -- my dear friend Joanne. The effect is somewhat lost if you don't know her, but I swear it looks just like her.

I used the Knit Your Own Rock Star pattern (loosely), basing Jo here on Joan Jett.

The painful details can be found on my blog: http://www.elizaboothy.blogspot.com.

Wow! That was fast! How many hours did you figure it took you to make her? I'm planning to make one for my daughter's first birthday, but I've got too much holiday knitting to think of before I dive in.

These booties aren't particularly flawed, but most babies won't keep anything (including socks) on their feet for very long. That's why you see so many babies with those little leather booties with the elastics around the ankles -- they're the only things that the little suckers can't kick off. Still, it's nice to have some booties in baby's wardrobe, so don't sweat it too much. And the strap on these ones does help if it's tight enough. Maybe the baby you're making them for will be particularly chill and wont wiggle out of them.

Wow, this takes me back. Just a little over 10 months ago, I went into labour. The baby wasn't coming fast, so the doctor sent me home for a few hours and while my husband rushed to clean the house ('cos we knew our parents would be coming into town) I picked up some needles and knitted a red pair of these booties. Ruby red slippers for my daughter Ruby Violet who arrived about 30 hours later.

It's a sweet pattern. Good luck keeping them on a baby's feet though.

I agree -- to anyone afraid of DPNs, just go for it! They're so fun. I know it looks super complicated, but once you get the hang of it, they're super fun. Plus you can make little bunny heads, which are cute as all get out.

And lets hear it for Jess Hutch. I love her Knitty pattern too!
