So, I took a plunge. I am now the proud owner of a Blythe doll. I purchased the Simply Mango set. She came with a precious little chihuahua even. Her name is Ginny mildly after Ginny Weasely.
At first it was a bit scary to change her eye color with the pull string but it is fun. Why don't all dolls have changing eye color?
Something I have noticed as far as knitting patterns, there are very few. Sewing patterns, wow, there are tons and for free! I have written one knitting pattern thus far. I am going to knit it a few more times to make sure it is bug free.
I made the most adorable "Weasely Sweater" and Gryffindor scarf. I am working on Ginny's Beehive hat from the GOF but I am unsure it is going to work out. I made an accidently sweater dress for her also. The accident was that I made it too small for R's elephant. Photos coming soon.
