Annabel Doll

Hello Everyone!

Long time, no post. I know. I’ve been very busy with other things that took priority. But here I am with a description for a girl doll.

Unlike for a son, I never thought of girls’ names. So I’m calling the girly dolls after myself and made the name longer. I don’t like my short name. But that doesn’t mean you can call me Annabel.

The knitting pattern for Annabel is nearly the same as for Thomas, except for the shoes. She’s got more girly ones. But it would be perfectly possible to give her the same kind of footwear as Thomas. But I don’t usually do that.

So let’s get started.

Happy knitting!
