Is that you actually have to choose which one you intend to use on the finished doll!

The heads are not attached firmly, so they are a little, well floppy and the lighting is terrible today as it’s a horrible overcast grey day.

When making crocheted dolls, rather than clothing or accessories, is that you ALWAYS have to constantly test, fit and adjust the piece that you are currently working with — to make sure it’s going to be correct for the finished item.  While the arms and legs are fairly standard in size – the body and head always seems to vary a little by doll — just because of the amount of stuffing and the size of the yarn and the hook.

Here is head number one, it’s a longer, thinner head (probably a good head for fairies).

head 1(a)Here’s head number two, shorter and more rounded.

head 2(a)Well, what do you think?

Hi, I'm Nancy I'm a yarn addict, number cruncher/bookkeeper, and software developer. Strange combination right? I get the same feeling of joy when working with high quality yarns that I do when a column of numbers are all neatly aligned and add up properly.
