Here are a couple of pics to give you an update on my status with the doll I am making.
In case you missed it in a previous post about this project, this is a pattern from Gourmet Crochet. It is called Topsy-Turvy Doll. I have a few "goofs" so far. I underestimated the amount of variegated yarn I had on hand so I had to be a bit creative with that. The variegated yarn ended up being a finer gauge. Also on the variegated portion of the project, I was supposed to crochet some of the rows in the blo but I didn't so I wasn't able to do the ruffles like in the picture. The variegated was what I was going to make the adult doll but now because of the yarn situation I may make that the baby and make a pink collar with a white edge to tie in the hodgepodge of yarns I'm using. If you look at the pattern on Gourmet Crochet you'll see what I mean. Anyway, I like the way the skirt on the pink side flares out--reminds me of a ball gown and yes, I did do quite a bit of improvisation on that too. I'm curious to see how she's going to turn out. The weekend is almost here and I hope y'all have a great one.
