More Shudayra - and - winning!

Above are some more pictures of the details on my doll.
There are more to come tomorrow!

A few weeks ago I won a giveaway on the Craft Gossip site and my prize came in the mail yesterday.  There are some great patterns in this book - ones that I think any man (or woman, for that matter) would like to have knitted for them.  I think Jack is going to receive a pair of socks from the pattern in this book (which is something he would NEVER expect after the last sock fiasco).  These are made using worsted which means they wouldn't take a lifetime to knit.  Sizes in this book range from small to 3 XL.  There are ten basic patterns in the book along with some witty writing describing how men are different from women in their clothing likes and dislikes (who knew???).  

Thank you Craft Gossip!

  4. Hi Mary Ann! Have to reply to you here since I don't have your email address on this computer yet.

    I don't know where the idea for using eyelash yarn to make a peacock tail came from. It just popped into my head a few years ago and I've done quite a few of those peacocks using it. Unfortunately, I have every color of eyelash yarn you can think of except pink!

    I tried the $ store here and they don't have any. Tried Michael's, Walmart & Hobby Lobby.

    Mom and I are checking out a yarn store today so perhaps I'll hit the yarn jackpot! Just what I need, more craft supplies! LOL!!!

    Love what your doll! And your new book! Looking forward to seeing what you make out of it.


  5. Your designs are quite nice. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog today. Have a great weekend. Connie
