Welcome to Wool on Sundays!
Do you find that small yarn projects sometimes go SO slowly? It’s a wonder to me that I could make a fair amount of progress in a jumper or cardigan in the time it takes me to make a single small item. This little doll, who I am calling Anya, is my latest attempt to make some ‘real’ things to sell at Christmas.
She is a peg doll/clothes pin doll with wellington boots, a silk dress and a knitted cape.
Anya was experimental from start to finish but now I’ve made her it should be quicker and simpler to make some more..
And at 5 1/2″ high she is probably small enough to be a decoration or a little crafting companion.

Oh wow! She is just gorgeous! Every little detail is so well proportioned. Id love a few of those for my little grand girls. However, I won't be in Australia any time soon : )
I mean the UK ! My bad
Lovely work! Maybe publish a pattern! Cutest!
I would love to have her encourage me as I knit/crochet.
That is a cute little doll and is so well dressed too.
Your Anya is a whole lot of teeny tiny gorgeousness, isn't she!! How on earth did you create her sweet wardrobe?? AND…those shoes, the perfect finish for her pretty outfit. Your Anya and her friends will be flying off your stall. Prepare yourself, Janine, for the madding crowd as they will be flocking around you for a hit of sweet Christmas cheer. =)

5-1/2 inches!! amazing that anyone could knit that small!! You better make a bunch because I think these dolls will be a big seller.
Such a sweet little doll, although she took so long to make I'm sure the time was all worth while and whoever receives these as gifts will cherish them :)

That is adorable! Are you going to sell them? :)

I absolutely adore her!! So creative! Those boots are my favourite :)
She is great fun!
she is brilliant! I'm usually freaked out by dolls, but I LOVE this one. Did you make the body and the wellies too?
Oh my — I agree that these would be a great seller – I would have LOVED having such a sweetie when I was a little girl! Actually, it would be nice if the coat came in adult sizes :D
SoooOOooo cute. Anya would make a great little red riding hood.
