  1. That is absolutely adorable!!
  2. You could always take her out carefully, measure and return to the box. I got my daughter two of the ones that Walmart sells, Madame Alexander. They are 18" though, I think, and that's what I did last Christmas. I took one out and infact kept her in my dresser drawer until I was done making the clothes and then tied her back in and no one was the wiser. I made them each a few outfits that she could open when she got the dolls. By the way, their hair is wonderful, doesn't mat or get all knotted and nasty like the 18" sold in craft stores, those are horrible. Good luck!!
  3. Oh, never even thought of getting stuck with a bad yarn:eek
  4. Those are great!! What a nice thing to do for those that have little comfort in their lives right now.
  5. Great shawl!! She's all set for a night on the town.
  6. Those are great!! I love the colors!
  7. I get my yarn at Michaels or JoAnn's. They have the biggest selection in this area. Big lots has yarn, small size, for those little scrap projects. I will buy from Herrschners or Mary Maxim when they have a sale on bulk if I need a lot. But I have to know which yarn it is because some of their yarn is thin and splits, so you have to be careful of that. I have started having people buy the yarn for things they want made too. If I charge them it's never even close to what it costs me. If they don't like it then I don't have to make it. I have a coworker who wants an afghan because she just got her new apartment. So she keeps giving me hints, how nice it would be if she had one. How wonderful if someone would make her one. People have no idea how time consuming and costly it is to make something.
  8. I just started having pain in my right shoulder, I'm also left handed, so I don't know why I get the pain in my right one. Anyway, I have used a bed pillow under my right arm so it's elevated enough to relieve the pain. But, no I won't stop crocheting!!!
  9. That is adorable!! Nice job.
