My knitting then ventured out to the hairstylist, Noreen, next door
and the boutique owner across the road, Ricky
who then asked me to make her daughter, Natalie as a surprise.
I wanted to make one young man in particular who frequently pops into Tinker Taylor for his takeaway coffees. He is certainly striking enough to make a good caricature. See the dictionary definition - it's definitely what I'm doing!
Short hair is the most difficult to do; as I always say, 'There is only so much you can do with wool'. The short neck hair and beard are the most difficult but as he's growing his hair and currently wears a hairband, the rest was much easier.
I finished each of my little tea shop ladies with a tote bag last week. I copied and miniaturised the logo Tinker Taylor then printed onto white cotton fabric.

The Mini-Mes are now finished, the yarn and needles tidied away. (For now!)
It's Friday, I hope you have a lovely weekend,
