hot fuzz

Okay, just a flyby post, despite the provocative title, it's nothing risque...really I'm just excited that I finally finished the knitted Bobby (British policeman) doll for Cee. I'm happy with the way it came out, and he's pretty tickled with it, too, being that he, as a little lad in England, used to have a policeman's outfit to play in....let's face it, we're both just a couple of giant big kids:

In a word, to sum up the pattern, I'd say fiddly...lots of little details, but ultimately a fun knit, and it only took me almost a year to make!! (mostly because I put it down to hibernate more often than I picked it up to work on it.) For anyone interested in the details, the pattern came from Jean Greenhowe's Mascot Dolls, which has some other really cute patterns in it.

"Eere..wot's all this, then?! Nothing to see here...move along, move along..."

This is the cutest policeman ever! I can see all the small details, Kiki. You did a beautiful job!

Aww thanks Vik! He was a bit fiddly, but in the end worth it.

I think the Constable was more than a bit fiddly, making toys is challenging!

Great job, Kiki, he is too cute and I love how you stick with tough projects to their completion.

Thank you Sharon! I felt bad for neglecting it so long.
