Sad to say that I got no way near my magic number of 20 comments on my giveaway of the severed finger lip balm holders. I guess I am going to be stuck with them in the house with me for a while. The good news is that I can deliver them to my niece so she can pass them out to her trick or treaters on Halloween. These things happen and I know that different patterns will be more popular than others so I’m okay with it (I’m just going to find an excuse to visit my niece and deliver them to her sooner rather than later). Besides, I’ve gotten over it and moved on to another Yarndango pattern quicker than the stores switch merchandise from Halloween items to Christmas items! Speaking of Christmas, this week’s Yarndango would make a lovely gift for a little girl.
It’s a baby doll! But not just any baby doll. This one has a split personality you see. Just like any baby, she can be wide awake and adorable, or she can be asleep! Okay, I know real babies have other emotions too, but I decided I didn’t want to include the screaming, teething, crying, and grumpy moods because that would just make me
want to tear my hair out sad.
So here she is in all her glory, my lovely little Dolly Double-Face:
This project can be made with basically any doll pattern that has ambiguous arms and legs so that they can face either way. All you have to do is flip her bonnet over to hide one face at a time. Easier than changing a diaper! But I will be posting this pattern soon. I’m not posting it now simply because I am opening a new blog at www.madcrochetlab.com where I will be putting all my patterns and crochet related posts. This should free up the tea room for my regular everyday non-crochet-related posts like the Live Poet’s Society, the Blog Friendship Cup, responses to my fan mail (spam), and other daily drivel. 🙂 So please just be a bit more patient while I move things around between blogs and get into a more normal routine. Ha. Normal. That’s funny.
And what have our other Yarndangoers been up to this past week? Just look at this:
Pumpkin has topped herself with that knifty knitter of hers this time. I love all her projects so far but this is my absolute favorite! I am in love!
Amiguruthi pulled out one of her older patterns and though she didn’t tag it with Yarndango, I say still counts because it is still an amigurumi project, it’s new to me, and it helps you find your car! It’s an easy project and adorable so check it out!
Hope everyone is having a good week. It’s been getting darker earlier and cooler at night lately so I guess we are creeping ever closer to fall. All the better for snuggling, I say!
