Barbie


I was asked to design a Barbie doll with my take on spring fashion and it was to have some of my knitting in it. So I turned this Barbie in to the Rocky Mountain News about a month ago. Her underpiece of her dress and her sweater are both knit. My hairdresser did her mohawk (I wish I was that talented...). Finally today, Barbie hit the paper along with the other 9 Barbies that were commissioned. Unfortunately, I don't think that the photo is great, but what can ya do? Here is the link to the story:

From there you can go to vote on all the Barbies - and I am shamlessly asking for votes!! My doll is Modern Mohawk. Please give mine a 5!! There are some other cool Barbies, too, so its fun to look!! Also, the Barbies are all being auctioned off with all the monies going to Dress for Success, a great cause!

Thanks for helping with the votes!!
Happy Knitting!!

That Barbie is great! I think the only other one i liked at all was the Gothie Barbie (not her real name - I can't recall it right now). Good luck!
