Introducing Cissy my Blythe (look a like) doll

Last year I discovered that most of the dyed curly wool I sold in my etsy shop was for re-rooting Blythe Dolls hair.I’d never even heard of them! After lots of searching I realised that these dolls are very popular and a worldwide collectors items. Being extremely popular they are also very expensive. I was told about similar dolls that sold for much less so I then went on a search for one that I could use to model the clothes I’m planning to knit, without costing the earth. Cissy (not her real name-her passport is in the name of Susie) arrived a few days before Christmas and although a little scary looking will be a very useful model as she is poseable. Unlike the Blythe Dolls Cissy’ hair has been glued on so I’ll have to live with that and just knit her some hats! Cissy is made by Tangkou and has her own stand, brush, comb and passport. With purple knee highs and boots she is quite funky and even has pierced ears!
