Momma's Dolls

My mom is great. She loves me and I love to knit, so she learned how to knit again. That's great
cause now we can do knitting things together. When she was here awhile ago, we hunted down a yarn store in Salem and found this adorable kit for something called a Kuku Doll. There sure are some imaginative, creative people out there! These dolls are just darling. Initially, we were disciplined and left the store with just yarn for a new scarf. But we couldn't stop thinking about these winsome dolls and their sweet smiles. The bodies are felted and the faces are made with needle felting. Mom says it's really not that hard to do. The yellow-haired doll is George. He lives with mom now. The other one she made for a new baby boy. The scarf is done and now she's making a matching hat. Go mom!
