This wee scottish laddie is my part of an exchange I did with the lovely Melissa who knitted me this gorgeous cardi that I have worn almost daily :-)
He is a 16 inch waldorf style doll made of cotton interlock stuffed with carded sheep's wool. His hair is made of the most brilliant red mohair yarn. He has green eyes, a wee mouth and his cheeks are blushed with a little red wax.
I had originally wanted to dress him in the Mackenzie tartan, which would by my family tartan on my grandmother's side, but I could only find a true kilt weight which would have been too bulky for this wee man so I settled on this lovely bright red dress tartan which is a light wool blend. He has a really soft brushed cotton shirt with a little matching tartan tie attached.
His wee cardigan and hat were my very first attempts at cable and I love it!!
I really loved making this doll, but more than anything I love the friendship that has grown out of this exchange. love and hugs to you Melissa :-) x x
