The Month Sisters: January

img_7739img_7743Previously, I made peg dolls representing March, May, and October. January was next on my list. I initially envisioned a doll with very pale skin, blue eyes, and white hair, but I later decided that I would make her coloring warmer, instead of icy pale. So this doll has brown eyes, rosy cheeks, and a darker peach skin tone than I had originally planned. The brown tones are evocative of the bare branches and tree trunks of winter. Her hair is white, but I chose not to use my iciest white yarn and went with a warmer white instead. She wears a white felt hat and matching cape, with a white and blue petal dress peeking out from underneath. I am pleased with the overall look. The peg is 2″.
