A Frankenstein moment

Instead of posting all the pictures of my weekend in D.C., I realized that I hadn't had much on the knitting tip lately. I have only a few weeks to finish the Boy Rad Doll from Knitted Toys.

Last year I completed the Girl Rad Doll from the same book as a gift for beautiful baby girl in Florida, and this year I am completing the Boy Rag Doll for a beautiful baby girl in Iceland. Its great to know that my rag dolls are going international.

So this weekend despite being in D.C. I was able to get some knitting done. I can't knit on buses, I get motion sickness but on Saturday night while watching television at my friend Donnell's apartment I was able to finish up the arms for the doll. I have now the pleasure of putting the body together today and starting the clothes. My biggest concern right now is the hair and making sure it doesn't come out. Don't want the dolly going to the Hair Club in Iceland in a couple of years.

I learned how to link today, Nan gave me the breakdown on how to do this. As simple as it was I am not the best at things like this, so she had to walk me through it. So no more ugly links on my blog.

Chica, you just totally let the cat out of the bag! You know Asthidur's mom reads your blog. I had been trying to keep it a semi-secret, that the dolls were for her. Of course I'm sure she figured it out anyway, but at least I could pretend it was a surprise!

I can't wait to see the finished doll.

I didn't realize you didn't know how to link. Doesn't it feel so great when you learn that? I even use it in e-mails sometimes, because I'm so amazed that I know how to do that (what can I say? it doesn't take much to thrill me!). :-)
