I made her for the Shakespeare Swap.  She's knit from the waist down, reducing stitches in the front and adding them in back for shaping, then one leg, then the other.  Then picking up stitches from the waist up to the top of the chest, CO six, pick up six for arms, then pick up those CO stitches again and worked up to shoulders, where I did sort of heel turning a la sock making  Tongue... then reducing to neck, doing a flap for the chin, then increasing and picking up stitches for the head...  (Which I did too agressively the first time, because her head came out like ET?)

I'm sure there's a better way, because that was complicated, but the only way I could think to do it.  Anyway, size one needles!  She's about 9 inches tall.

Her hair is some funky yarn I got from my grandmother, and her face is my haphazard embroidery technique.

Her clothes were machine sewn.  The shift has elastic in the neck seam, and the dress has a snap in the back so they are fully removable, in case my partner wants to make her new outfits for other Emma Thompson roles.  (I'm thinking Professor Trelawney, but that's just me... Cheesy)


dressed and sitting up.


undressed.

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
