So. I've been lucky enough to test knit some patterns for Emily of Yarn Miracle (here's her Etsy shop and her Ravelry store). Today I finished up part one of "G is for Girl" and let me tell you, I love this doll (even naked and hairless). Once the pattern is available for purchase, I think everyone should go out and buy it - I mean, just check out those awesome thumbs!
Here's the line-up of big dolls I've made using Emily's amazing (and detailed!) patterns. I've also made a few of her smaller critters, but there's no telling which toy box they are in (though the wee rabbit was gifted to my sister - and then her youngest daughter stole it).
As I type, all three boys are jumping all over the beds (oy) playing with these guys. Seriously, Emily is one of my all time favorite toy designers out there. I can't even find the words to express how amazing it is to me that she lets me get first crack at her patterns.
