I think her name is Honor.

Obviously I need practice in dealing with wigs, and in choosing a perspective that does not make it look like she has rag-rolled ringlets (say that, three times, fast!).

This post is primarily to show off Nekokoi’s mad skills when it comes to fitting. Here, with my current knitting in her exquisitely fashioned hands.

And just the hands.

Not even tempted.

I had just sufficient energy before bedtime last night, to take Jessica [still unnamed] out of her box and measure her torso for Nekokoi, who will make her a tunic from a handkerchief or bandanna, to cover her nakedness.

In responding to Nekokoi’s email this morning, I realized that I had not so much as glanced at SOOM’s current monthly doll. So I went over to their website, and the only things I liked were small bits of the costume which would be easy enough to replicate.

The current dolly projects are to find a permanent name for Blessing’s curvalicious sister and then to go stash diving for skirt fabric and yarn for a sweater. [Maybe that poison-green, unruly, allegedly-baby-alpaca laceweight? I might be able to tame it if I knit it up in stockinette on 000 needles.]

Jessica’s here!

She’s here, she’s safe, and I was up way too late last night. No pictures until I make a blouse for her.
