prairie needed something to put into her classes winter raffle basket. i was sitting there last night in front of cold case and in front of the big ball of yarn so i just picked up a pair of needles and started knitting a little gnomey hat. then i made the doll. she is a typical steiner/waldorf doll for a little one. stuffed lightly with fleece, she can be chewed on quite happily with no ill effects. that hardly used any yarn so lots left for a project!
