Audrey

Audrey is new in my shop today!

She's the first of a new generation of dolls - each one in this batch really will be one of a kind. I'm not writing the patterns down, or even taking notes as I make them. I'm simply enjoying making them up as I knit, picking colours without wondering whether I have enough, seeing where the shapes want to go.

In recognition of this, each one gets a name. And, not surprisingly, along with a name a small bit of a personality comes peeking out: Audrey's clearly a tomboy, quite smart, generally sweet, but unfortunately sometimes a bit sullen. And she likes to dance. Her name could have been Ethel, but for the long legs.

She's knitted in DK wool, on a circular needle, and all her bits are knitted on, to minimise seaming.

Very cute. It is amazing how can you just create while you knit.
