Rosie the doll

Pattern: Yuletide Rosie designed by Rosalie Quinlan
Book: Vol 7 No 5 Christmas In July Special Edition of Country Threads

I chose to make my doll a lovely green instead of the red one in the book, although I do love the original one very much. I finished knitting up the scarf and hat last week, but with all the birthday party celebrations I only just managed to sneak a photo this afternoon. I think she turned out quite nicely too, so thank you Rosalie for the lovely pattern.

P.S. Thank you all so so much for the wonderful birthday comments for Isabelle. I am going to read them all to her tomorrow as she is busy at the moment playing with her Bindeez kit. I will show you the results when they have dried. Now I must go and make some egg and bacon pie for dinner, yummy! See you all later.

Oh this doll is lovely, you are so very productive, if I don't check for a few days I seem to miss loads. I love the elephant fabric you bought, I have never come across it before.

She is lovely, the green is so fresh looking. Doesn't she look nice and cosy in her scarf and hat.

The doll is great! I have been meaning to make a similar Christmas doll (Swedish elf style) since I saw the pattern in Marie Claire Idees a couple of years ago!) I like that you chose green!!
