reborn baby doll

I've not posted for a while because I have been busily making this reborn doll , i can't get the photo to do her justice, she is a lot more detailed than she looks and weighs and feels like a real baby. I've knitted another neck down cardigan for her this time. I've used layers of real effects air dry paints to paint her, she's made from a Sofia doll kit and has dark brown mohair for her hair. The mohair fleece is from Areeba who lives on Newmoor Barn farm in Devon..

Neck down cardigan

Lovely little 0 to 3 months cardigan which I made using this neck down pattern. The pattern means no sewing together pieces at the end :-)

Work In Progress ~ Baby blanket

At the moment I'm busily making a double sided baby blanket, circles on one side and plain turquoise on the other

I need to take another pic outside in the daylight because the colours aren't showing true, the turquoise isn't far off but the other colour is lime/pistachio green.
The pram it's being made for has circles in the upholstery and is dark grey and pistachio so i'm hoping that it will compliment it nicely. I'm using double knit wool so that the quilt will be nice and snuggly. 
If anyone would like a go I'll try to write down my pattern for you.

Leap Year Blanket

back into making granny squares and joining them as I go using this method so that I don't end up with a pile of squares that need sewing.
I'm joining in with the leap year blanket group on facebook a square a day and by the end of the year a banket should be finished . . . . . . well if I don't get way laid !! It's interesting to see the squares being made by the other crocheters on there and supportive having people to talk to :)
