I have learnt that I am a loose knitter and there for I should probably go for a smaller needle than the one suggested.
I didn't have the size needle they said so I used bigger needles. Not w good choice.
Even though is she big, huge, almost the size of a toddler she is coming together and with the adding on of the last of the bits and bobs she should look ok.
I did suggest I throw her out and stqrt again, but the ladies at knitting class told me not to do that.
One lady even said she would smack my bottom if I did.
They all agreed that a sick child would love her. So I'm going to continue and make both dolls up and send them into the hospital package with the rest.
I'll post more photos when they are both done.
At least I've now learnt what I did wrong and can only get better, I hope.
