My fun for today.
I've been looking for small quick toys to do. I found this one this morning and made her up real quick. She has lots of potential! First time messing with the pattern, so I'm not particularly happy how the decreases worked but that always happens to me the first time I do a pattern like this until I "fix it" the way I want it *laugh*
She's supposed to be an angel, but I don't want her to be an angel, so I didnt make her wings, but I'm gonna do her with all kinds of hair and dresses And make her hold hearts, baskets etc.
Sorry the last pic isn't that great, was the first one of the three and my daughter was taking them with her camera for me, so I couldn't exactly complain

She is too cute! Is she from a free pattern?

"Strike a pose." HA!

I agree. Since I've made my socks I'm suddenly very picky about which decreases to use on every project.

Yep she is a free pattern.
http://www.littleturtleknits.com/pages/freebies.php
Scroll down there and you'll see her.
I made the smaller version of her, cast on 35.etc. You'll see it in the instructions.
Was my second project ever made on 2 circs First was a pair of sock slippers for hubby

This green yarn was kinda "slippery" so the decreases show up too much as "jumpy" if that makes sense, but I think if made bigger and with other yarn the pattern is well written and works ok. A little fudging cuz I was on two circs and not DPNS but nothing major. Only took a few hours for me to make with interuptions. You could permanently tack her arms, so that they can be played with and not POSED *laugh*
