As promised - a boy with mixed rainbow hair!
This one is so cute, I had a hard time packing him into the box and shipping him off.

Why Wally? Well, Sweet Pea watched Wall*E when this guy was about half completed. Then she spent two days playing Wall*E. In her world, this consists of running around the living room with a blanket over her head, repeatedly yelling out "WALLY! Wally? WaaaAAAALLLYYY!!!!" and so on. For hours. For some reason, Wally was the only thing I could think of when it came time to give this little guy a name.

When he was all finished up, we took Wally for a long walk to the park, and let him play on the toddler jungle gym. I think he really enjoyed it!

And now Wally is on his way to a little boy. He'll be more than happy to give all the snuggles and go on adventures. Bon voyage, Wally!

It took me the better part of a month to pull this one together, but there will definitely be more mermaids in my future!

Sweet Pea really enjoyed helping me decide on the details - and I think she did a great job suggesting just the right amount of sparkle.

Everything came together pretty much perfectly. I'm very happy with all of it!

Now I have a custom doll on the go, and then some Easter stuff to complete. I'm pretty pumped about the custom doll - it will be a 14" boy with mixed rainbow hair. Should be pretty cute. He's already got a head!

I *should* be making dolls . . .

. . . but lately I've been knitting!
I've had a lot of things on needles. Things just sitting. Things in progress. And as of late, I've been finishing so many of them up! I finished socks, fingerless mittens, and a toddler sweater in the last week. IN THE LAST WEEK!! And it feels awesome to have that off my plate.

But now it's time to focus on dolls again. Because the whole one a week goal . . . well, it's not happening.
I have a mermaid who is just a few days away from completion. There is a custom doll in the works. Given that Easter is coming, I would really like to make some bunny suited dolls, too. There should be new dolls to show soon!
