Little Poppy

Just finised knitting the second doll on my list and have named her Poppy

I used the same pattern as I did for little Holly which I completed last month so they are in effect sisters! Used different colour combinations this time mainy pinks and lilacs.

Tried a different hairstyle this time but still found it a challenge to do. I cut the yarn longer this time and used more of it to give it a thicker, bushier look. I think her hair turned out better than Holly’s but I’m still not over the moon with it. Next time I might try curly hair, now that will be a challenge and a half!

She actually looks more a little lady than tomboy Holly – the difference hairstyles and colour combinations can make. Both little dolls will be wrapped up soon, as they are destined to be Christmas presents to two little sisters.
