What I got for this week's yarn along

I've crocheted a wig cap for Victoria, at last!
I've used some lovely mohair (70% mohair/ 30% acrylic) and a size 5 metal crochet hook, following these instructions again, this time decreasing for the last 2 row. It fitted very snuggly! I didn't attached hair to all the cap like I did for him, instead I went around and in the middle, for a pigtail look.

And this is my week's reading. I love tattoos and tattooing. My first real passion, apart from drawing. This might be the only sacrifice I made when deciding to stay at home...


  1. Thanks so much for the book tip, I have an idea for tatto's I'm so eager to do for my nephew...his mother (my sister) has several tattos and I need some extra designs to fill in! Love it!

  2. I'm so impressed with your doll! There aren't too many projects that intimidate me, but that is one of them! Wow!

  3. My daughter is designing a manatee as a tribal tattoo for an art contest right now. It just makes me laugh every time I see it but that has more to do with the manatee than her drawings, I swear!!!

  4. That looks like a really interesting book. The belly painting pic lower down on this page is just gorgeous. Is that your work?

  5. I just love that you can make these dolls! And the hair turned out so cute. I just had to go and check out the flickr photos and have bookmarked them so that if I get courageous enough to try making one for my daughter I am definitely going to use them as reference :) Interesting book to. I have one tiny little tattoo but am always in awe of some of the gorgeous tattoos that people have :)


Thanks for commenting!
