Dudoza Give-Away!

Today I bring you my first give-away, in honor of the first day of spring!

These little ones have been sitting in my knitting basket for almost two years, ALMOST finished, needing just the final finishing touches to be complete. I was sad seeing them lying there, not being played with like they should be. So... this week I took a bit of time to finish the dolls, and here they are!

The pattern is called "Comfort Doll", or "Dudoza". I was given the pattern and taught how to knit it by my ninety year old friend, Teddy. She and other ladies knitted many of these dolls for charity organizations in the past. One year she, our friend Charlotte, and I created over sixty dolls to give away for Christmas! They are very easy to make, but take a little time if you want them to look nice and have individual touches, like the sewn mouth and eyes, braids, separate feet, different colors, etc.

Each doll is approximately seven inches tall. I love trying to knit each one in yarn combinations that are completely unique. They are both sturdy and ready for play!

Do you have a daughter? Or a niece, or nephew, or neighbor, or granddaughter, or friend's child? Perhaps they'd like to play with these "Dudoza"! If you'd like to win these dolls in the give-away, please enter by leaving a comment below and tell me what your favorite thing about springtime is! 

The winner will be chosen at random on the first day of spring, March 20th. Comments will be closed the night before, March 19th, at 8:00 p.m.  Only one entry per person, please.

P.S.  - I'm not worried if only a few people respond : )  And I can only send these dolls to people within the United States. However, if you'd like to share this give-away on your blog, then more people could have the opportunity to win these dolls, and that would be awesome! I don't want these little dolls to lie around my house unused any longer.

These are just adorable! I just stumbled across your blog for the first time today and wanted to say how sweet and lovely I found it.

Awww, thank you, Angela! If you have a blog, I'd love to read it : )

So far, nobody has claimed these little friends! I'm going to donate them to a local yarn store as a give-away soon if nobody online wishes to bring them home : ) Any takers?

I just found your blog. I really enjoyed reading through your posts and love these knitted dolls. My daughter would love them if you haven't already found another home for them.
