He worked very hard on this pattern and then patiently explained to me what it said. Do you see those horizontal lines on the side? That is the handy ruler he created for me so that I would know just how tall the doll needed to be.
Then he picked out some yarn in his favorite color, orange. He chose cotton dishcloth yarn in orange and white from my stash and for the hair he chose some fuzzy orange novelty yarn that a co-worker of Christopher's recently gave to me.
Next, my sweet boy had to wait so patiently while I worked on his pattern. That isn't always easy for a five year old, you know.
By Sunday afternoon, Max's doll was finished. He is so happy, which makes me very happy, and he has already started drafting ideas for another pattern for me to "kniddle" for him.
Keep them coming, sweet boy, keep them coming.
