Finally, an honest-to-goodness picture! Here's my littlest sister, Lexi (she's 5), displaying the scarf I made her for her birthday. The fuzzy yarn is Adriafil Stars in Peach/Pastels and it is every bit as soft as it looks. Stars is a bit thin and kept tangling, so I carried it along with some acrylic Red Heart Kids variegated rainbow-colored yarn. I made the darn thing so long (probably a good 6') that it is wrapped around her several times. She's very tiny! But I wanted her to be able to play with it and dress up in it if she wanted.
I want to get a head form for blocking hats and for 'holding' them until I give them away (it wouldn't hurt for measuring either, so that The Boy doesn't end up modeling all of them). Here's one that I found on ebay. I'm calling her Kate, because she looks like Katherine Hepburn. What do you think? Is she worth $16 (incl. s&h)?
