    Nothing wrong with basic! Your dolls look great, and it’s clear they are well loved. One of the things I think makes dolls such great gifts is that their wardrobes can be expanded over time … Can’t wait for the day when my grandkids & I are making doll clothes together. :)

    They’re awesome ! Groovy knits and personality, what more do you want in handmade dolls? I love the mitten/sexy pullover.

    Every August I play with making matching hats or mittens for Christmas for my great nephews and nieces. They have had robots and owl and crocodiles. It’s silly and the knitting is easy with repetition. Plus no deadline fatigue. This year I am hacking your Clayquot hat to make 9 with a new fun design.
