Lena by day Eek! We’re almost there! In just over a week, we’ll be moving to our new home. Naturally, we’ve been extremely busy – but yesterday, I just had to get started on a doll. It had just been too long. 🙂 Ever since buying a little-girl-and-doll pyjamas set from Hema, my favourite Dutch department store, I wanted to make Nynke a doll that could wear the matching doll pyjamas. This is the result; she’s called Lena (pronounced the Dutch way:  Lay-nah. More or less!).

I’m currently knitting her a little dress from this fabulous (and very simple) pattern:  Rainbow Dress.

Lena's dress to be

Only doll-sized, of course, as Lena is only 10 inches tall. And I’m thinking of also knitting her a little hat, to secure her hair until Nynke is a bit older.

That’s my update for now – more in a week or two, I hope!
