Lizzie’s Wig Arrived…

…but I gave it to Niamh. Well, it looked tiny when I got it out the packet and I wasn’t convinced it would fit an 8.5″  head…so I tried it on Niamh and I think that’s where it will stay.

I think from some angles, she looks like Honeysuckle Weeks.

Oh well – I think it was too blonde for Lizzie anyway. I just ordered her a red-brown Jojo wig.

Caroline’s Cardie

Finally sewed up the cardie I knitted a couple of weeks ago in 2 ply yarn on 1.5mm needles. I thought I would give it to Caroline. She got a new wig today too, Monique Sassy (can’t remember the colour name).

Something Inferior

I read this comment about a Soom Mini Gem Aren on a forum – “I didn’t want the Soom face-up wiped and replaced by something inferior” and I thought – I’m going to do that to mine.

So here was Jilli –

And now here is Jilly –

Yeah, definitely inferior! I don’t care, I like her better now.

More Robin Rambling

Blimey look at the face on that…

Noah is reluctantly helping me out with my knitting. I am knitting a jumper for Robin (should have plenty of time to finish it before he arrives…) and I want it to be quite baggy. Lucky I already have two Super Gem boys to check sizes on – but Jake is busy and Noah doesn’t have anything to do apart from ignore Caroline, so he gets the honour.

I am knitting this in baby 3 ply on my horribly bent 2mm needles. I know it’s only synthetic yarn, but when it’s finished I want to steam the hell out of it so it goes floppy and drapey.

I would like to get Robin a few outfits together before he arrives. The thing is, I am excited about him – but to anyone else, his arrival is not going to be any big deal, he’s just another human. So he’ll just arrive quietly and sneak in, I think. Which is kind of fitting, as that’s how he’ll arrive in the village. Just move in quietly one day, on his own, no entourage or fuss. But I feel like I want to make it up to him so if I can get him some clothes ready, that will make me feel better about it. I ordered him some boots today anyway.

I dont think any of my dolls arrived to find an outfit waiting for them…it will be nice for me too, because he will come with his face up and wig and eyes, so if I have clothes and shoes ready, I can just take him out the box and play.
