|Knitted Pirates, Princesses,Witches, Wizards and Fairies by Annette Hefford|
I saw this book and immediately wanted it. I had just restarted knitting because lots of my work colleagues were expecting babies and I love knitting small things like baby clothes. This book is beautiful just to look at. The book describes everything you need to complete a project with photographs.

It contains patterns for 10 dolls. Each is clearly written with photo's of every step. I chose Samuel Crowe Pirate and I found it really easy to follow and enjoyed making him.
It is fiddly and lots and lots of little bits but I love that. Once the doll's body is made, each evening I would be able to start and finish a piece. He has so many bits! A shirt, breeches, a belt, boots, hat, scarf, sword, rings, hair.....The amount of detail in each doll is wonderful.

I bought this book from Amazon, I can't remember exactly what I paid but it was less than the published price of £12.99.
Samuel Crowe Pirate, he has a passing resemblance to a very famous pirate! Guess who? I love him x
Why are pirates called pirates? They just aaaaaaargh!
