a new doll on the way...

I needed some inspiration, so i took out ("again!" you might say!) "Stitch by Stitch" by Jane Bull (see here ), and I found a quick pattern to knit a doll (The lollipop dolls, on page 100!)..... yesterday, in the late afternoon, I started to knit a head

followed by the body...

....the legs....

....the arms...

Some close ups now....

It's funny, though... while I was taking those pictures, the first thing that came to my mind was Doctor Frankenstein!!! Probably because we are in October, you know....Halloween....!!??!!

"Look! It's moving. It's alive...It's alive, it's moving, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, IT'S ALIVE!"

Well, luckily I don't need to reach a cemetery to find all I need for my little doll... I think an haberdasher's shop will do !!

Some buttons, threads, just a little sewing will transform a beauty!! She needs some hair and a nice dress, too!!

I think that the connection with Frankenstein is due to the fact that the doll lies on a table like the Monster...  :oD

Today I join Creative Friday !!! Be curious and follow me! Thank you!

P.S.: remember my Blog Birthday Giveaway is still on! Have a look here for more details!! Thanks!


  1. Oh. Alessandra, This is a very hard and very fine work...:))
    So hard for me..:))
    Happy happy weekend....

  2. I think the doll is looking very cute and not a bit Frankensteinish!

  3. I wish I could create with wool! She's lovely! Ada :)

  4. Really adorable, I want to make a bunch myself!!! Best wishes!

  5. How cute! I'm going to have to add this to one of the many things I want to knit. Now if I could actually finish a knitting project!

  6. This is so gorgeous Alessandra - she's so cute and I love the colours too :) Happy weekend!

  7. What a funny doll! The striped legs are an eye-catcher :-). I'm curious how it will look in the end!

  8. Hello Allessandra

    Greetings from Ireland.

    I found you through Emma's blog
    as she wrote about you today.

    I love all your crafting it is wonderful.

    I am learning to knit
    can do knit stitch and purl but that is it.
    I still can't change colour of the wool so that is the next thing for me to learn.

    I have absolutely no idea about crochet but yours is magnificent.

    I really enjoyed looking at your lovely photos and seeing your wonderful creations today.

    You are a talented lady.

    Have a good week
