yeah, i'm like that. "go big or go home!" so this is the second ever thing i have attempted to crochet. it's still not entirely finished (i only have one crochet hook, and i need a different size to do the dress...) i don't want to do the face before i settle on the colour for the eyes (buttons! how cute!)
i showed her periodically to my husband and he just said, "you make me sick! you can do anything!" aww, what a lovely compliment! but yeah, i believe i can. i think i've not been crocheting exactly right, but now i know! and she still looks beautiful...
now i'm getting addicted to amigurumi dolls/animals. it's super easy, and really cute. i knew i wanted to crochet for a reason! i'm going to find a couple of different projects so i can practice the different crochet stitches.
FYI: the pattern for the doll above is free and can be found here. the finishing instructions aren't as clear to a novice doll maker, but since i've knitted many dolls and figures, i just worked off the pictures. enjoy!
