So, know that Secret Project I mentioned a couple times, the one inspired by the beautiful green sock yarn from Six Skeins that I won a couple weeks ago? I'm mostly done with the first part and ready to share a peek!
I was originally thinking this would be a fairy, with outfits that reflect the four seasons. But wings are puzzling me. Are there wingless fairies? Or should I call it a sprite? She doesn't have hair yet, but I really wanted to share right now cuz I'm so excited to have the body done -- it's my first time designing a doll crochet pattern -- a full-body one, I mean -- and after lots of experimenting, it finally came out satisfactorily.
So, I got the amazing green sock yarn from Six Skeins wound into two small cakes, and I also wound up three sock yarn mini skeins I got from Wullenstudio. Have to have yarn for the other three seasons, not just green for spring! Though I think the green will be my starting point for the clothes. Each outfit will be designed to reflect the season, and come with a hat too. I already have the basic look for each one figured out (maybe one day I'll sketch out my designs so I don't forget them, but right now, all my pattern ideas are stored in my head), I just need to make them.
(My yarn cakes are a little messy because when I wound them, I had two small helpers who are possessed of more enthusiasm than exactness. They had lots of fun!)
