Close but no cigar =(
If I didn’t have a deep desire to see my Affro Girl in doll form I know I would have given up by now. Each time I get a little closer to what I want. But each time I am not successful another little chink of confidence falls away. I think the face and body are getting closer to right. The feet are too square at the heel and the top of the head and hair are still weird.
I think the danger in this posting everyday thing lies in reaching for something to post. I feel sure that this photo would have never seen the light of day otherwise. I will tweak the pattern yet again tomorrow. After some ego boosting knitting and bag making I may be ready to give it a try again.
