unexpected guest

A fellow parent and organizer of our school's Holiday Fair came by to match the blue of the afghan she's captured for the raffle site (still under construction) against the real thing and to show me this doll. She designed the raglan sweater "as she went along" and used our handwork teacher's plant-dyed yarn for that and the wee shoes. This doll and a handful of others plus hand-knit and felted animals and playscapes and locally made wooden toys will be among the items available this year in a special room devoted to gifts for children.

Lucky kids to be the recipients of such lovely toys!
I was able to stop by the Fair last year and hope to again this year. This doll is so precious. I have two nieces who would love her but I wonder if I'd be able to give her away.
What beautiful yarn!
i love, love, love toys made with the waldorf school's values in mind. the caring is so obvious in this doll. best luck w the sale!
