I am a member of the Aussie Knitters Yahoo Group and we are knitting for the Uthando Project (dolls for Zulu children). The dolls must have brown (not black) skin with black hair.
My dolly began as a Trauma Teddy and ended up looking like this ..... I began with 12 stitches for each leg, then dolly just evolved as I continued knitting. I knitted in some lace at the bottom of her knickers !!
I have now started on a "sister" for her ............
