Best Imitation of Myself

I hate being sick. Just trying to be yourself is a struggle. The Flu has run through both my munchkins and It ran into me last night. The only upside to being huddled under the covers alternately shivering or baking in a hot-flash is that I've got all that time to knit. Hopefully I'll have a dress done for my 3 year-old's doll, Keekee, by tomorrow afternoon. The bodice is done I just have to work the skirt, I'll post a pic when its done.
If anyone is looking for something interesting to read check out Self-Made Man by Nora Vincent

FROM THE PUBLISHER: Norah Vincent absorbed a cultural experience and reported back on what she observed incognito. For more than a year and a half she ventured into the world as Ned, with an ever-present five o’clock shadow, a crew cut, wire-rim glasses, and her own size 111/2 shoes—a perfect disguise that enabled her to observe the world of men as an insider.

This is great, and quick read. You'll really look at men differently after this one.

And they're off....

I wasn't sure about doing the MySpace thing, my husband actually laughed at me. Then I found Blogger through a knit along site.
I'll post the pics of the dolls I've made so far in the next entry .
