I learnt two new things today thanks to youtube. The first was how to make curly hair for a doll. I stumbled across this by accident and I'm always amazed at how obvious things are when you know the secret. Anyway, all you do is split wool yarn and you end up with lovely curly/wavy hair.
The other thing I learnt was how to attach hair to a doll's head. It simply involves pulling a couple of strands of hair through a stitch with a crochet needle then looping them through to knot them into place.
And why am I doing all this. Because my Frankensteining of knitting patterns was to try and create a dolly hand puppet. The knitting part is easy enough but the fun part is definitely arranging the hair. I even got to play hairdressers, deciding what length to cut it and whether to tie it up or not.
And that's what I've been up to today. Have any of you been what I call 'faffing around' with anything? If you have, please let me know, so I don't have to sit here feeling guilty that I've done not much else at all today apart from 'play'.
