Meet the family. 🙂
They’re done! I have knitted us, and we do bear at least a passing resemblance to ourselves. Here we are: me, Mr TwistedYarn the stoic spouse, and the toddler twinnage. Can’t tell the difference between the twins? Nor can I, half the time. Anyway here we are, saying hello.
And here we are again:-
And here we are enjoying our photo-shoot, never knowingly camera-shy:-
Just in case you want to knit your own family too, all of these dolls are based on this pattern. I adjusted size and clothing accordingly for each doll, for example making the jumper into a jumper-dress for me, lengthening the trousers for the stoic spouse, and knitting the twinnage on teeny-weeny little 2mm needles (never again).
I had an idea, as I was knitting. I was thinking about people in the armed forces and their children back home. Maybe someone should knit/crochet perfect representations of the absent parent for the children whilst the parent is on a tour of duty. Just a thought.
And now I am smiling, because I’m free to start knitting the header for this blog – a spot of fair isle with some crocheted flowers around the edge – much more up my street. The wine is open, the fire is lit, it’s going to be an evening of yarn. 🙂
