I have such good friends

Look at this adorable little doll I received in the mail last week!

My friend Karisa made it for me and I'm completely smitten. I especially love the way she personalized it with the brown hair and miniature knitting needles. I've been trying to decide where to put her so that I can see her often.

Karisa suggested a handmades trade after she asked if I could knit some booties for her new baby girl. I tend to get heart palpitations whenever someone offers to pay me for something I've made so the idea of trading calmed my pulse. I have no idea what to charge for knit items. Or for any item now that I think about it. I should probably work on getting over that. Anyway, the crisis was averted in this situation.

Thank you so much Karisa, I really love it. Your booties are all packaged and ready to go to the post office tomorrow morning. I hope you're happy with them in real life!

I love it! I've wanted to make some of those little dolls, and the tiny knitting needles really do it for me.

Miss Ruby will be so cute in her booties. (She's cute even without booties.)

Good work sister. I wonder why she had to take all of Mom's creative genius.

Oh, man, that doll! I love her. I think that a doll-making tutorial should show up soon. (And i love your soap how-to. I'm itching to get my hands on some wool, asap.)

I thought of Emily when I saw that cute doll! She's darling (both the doll and Emily, of course).
