Sally, from the newest Knitty, is finished! She was a fun, and actually not too long knit. I think I started her the week before christmas. She's quite a bit bigger than the pattern, 18 inches. Part cause that just happened to be the size she ended up with the yarn I used (that lions brand vanna stuff) and also cause I did want her to be bigger, and on bigger needles. I didn't change much, I think I accidentally did the dress longer than the pattern called for, I did the dress neck different too by omitting the yo's. I also gave her a belly button.
As you can see, her new friend (my niece) is liking her so far, she's doing the I'm-too-tired-to-be-tired wandering around the house. I think everyone should knit a sally!!!!
