Elvira

 

Begun

Baby alpaca and silk lace weight yarn…a new Hitty cupboard project started on Valentine’s day…

Arms

Arms

… first I made two arms…

Legs

Legs

…then two legs…

Socks

Socks

…a pipe cleaner armature, and some light brown wool roving (dark brown in the boots)…

Elvira and Amelia

Elvira and Amelia

…and Elvira is almost ready to dance and prance!

post script: the youngest member of the human family fell in love with this doll when she was complete, and re-named her Lala… a new knitted Elvira-doll was finished a few weeks afterward!

Thank you very much to one of my Hitty friends who devised this Hitty-sized knitted doll, and to another who refined the pattern and shared it with Hitty-knitty folks.  Elvira will be glad to have a face, hair and clothes, because some humans around here have alluded to a similarity between her and an unclothed sock monkey!

    • Thanks very much – I like that the pattern sections come about once a week, so there is no particular pressure to do the whole doll at once! It is a nice soothing activity for me (especially since it is turning out pretty well!)

  1. Oh ho….sock monkey eh? That made me laugh out loud and Hetty Hickory said she could definitely see a similarity! heh heh. I personally am anxious to see this little Miss with a face.
