Knitted dolls

Shelley isn't just a speedy cook, she also knits like the wind. In recent weeks, she's finished countless scarves, baby gifts and three embellished dolls for her granddaughters (who, incidently, are about as cute as they come).

The above mermaid doll was knit from this book. Dream Toys basically gives you five dolls plus accessories; the stuffed toy to the right of the princess on the book's cover is her turreted castle. There's a toy horse inside that just might find its way into my knitting bag for a wee buckaroo born last month.

Don't you just love that Shelley used Noro Kureyon for the mermaid's tail?
