Crochet Me a Doll...Finish!

Every year for Christmas our family draws a name out of a hat and the name that you draw is the person you're supposed to make a special gift for.  Well, one year I made a doll for one of my sisters, another year I made another doll for my other sister, and this year I was lucky enough to pull my sister's name who hasn't gotten a homemade doll from me yet.  I only have three sisters, so this is the last doll I will be making.. well, for Christmas anyway ;).      I was browsing the internet and this is what I came across!  I was so excited to try out this pattern!  It was so easy to follow and I learned a few new stitches!  I had to make a few adjustments in the feet and hands, but otherwise, the pattern was lovely!  This is my finished doll:   

I'm quite surprised that I was able to complete this without my sister finding out... well, my basket fell over and an arm rolled out, but besides the suspicious look, I don't think it occurred to her that that arm was going to be part of her Christmas present *phew*! 
     It's chilly in New England today!  Off to make a cup of peppermint green tea (my favorite!) and pop in a movie.... and, of course, crochet.  But that goes without saying, doesn't it?
