Oh what have I started? I sewed babe together this evening and still I have no maternal instincts for her. Her head looks oddly shaped, I wasn't sure if I was over or understuffing her and those white felt eyes are just not right! Help....fellow sucessful babe knitters please advise? Will I like her more once she has hair and eye's have stitching (no i didn't sew on yet cause I just was not convinced that placement would be right on an unstuffed head, hoping to whip stitch edges on stuffed head.) Will she be better with clothes. Yes I am a newish knitter and I did love knitting her, but she is full of imperfections of form. Does everyone else's doll look as perfectly symetrical as the unclothed doll in the book?
Now grant it I did use blue sky alpaca to knit her, on size 2 U.S needles. Her measurements are about the same as those shown in the book. (though they don't say her crown will be 3 inches across but at her eye's it will be 4!!) I can only hope that we will bond and that I won't be having to knit 10 of her before one is web posting worthy. Sorry to need handholding, any will be appreciated. She has been fun so far but represents no small amount of time invested thus far. Nervous "mum" in Idaho.
