Two weeks ago I knitted this Golly Doll or Golly Wog, which is what it was called when I was a child. I chose the 1956 Women's Weekly pattern because I figured it was probably the one that was made for me. Golly was the first toy I remember being given.

Last week I knitted this more sophisticated Goth Doll from a 2012 pattern by Fiona MacDonald. Both these dolls took about 15 hours of knitting - very labor intensive, but satisfying in the cold weather we've been experiencing in Melbourne.
