Knitted Babes

I borrowed the Knitted Babes book from my friend Linda a little over a week ago, and have already finished my (well, Zora's) first knitted babe.
Here she is, only halfway done:


I took a picture at this point, because it was this moment in the project process that I fell in love with the doll. I think there is always a point in the creative process that I decide I will henceforth devote my life's pursuits to making this particular craft or object:
"I will make one for Becky and Julie and Claudia and Eris and Isabell and Cassidy, oh and for me and I will make a few more for Zora, and I will make them bigger, and I will make some smaller, and..."

In reality, I will probably make 2 more and then get tired of it and move on. But I love that moment.

I sat with her, like this, while I knit her legs - she just seemed so precious.
And you should see her now!
I will save that for next time though.
