Jack and Kerry Anne

Unless you have been reading my blog for a very long time you will probably not know who Jack and Kerry Anne are, and I thought it might be nice to introduce you properly.

A long time ago when my own children were small they were given some anatomically correct dolls, which were named after the two newest babies in the village – Jack and Kerry Anne.

When I took up crochet my first few projects were to make clothes for the two dolls, and it proved to be a wonderful way of getting into hooking – small achievable projects with a tangible use.

Since then they have been the recipients of many prototype pieces, and along the way their dressing up box has provided much pleasure to visiting children.

The original Jack and Kerry Anne have long since left the village so will probably never know that they have a name-sake, or get the chance to see their many crocheted accessories!

    How sweet and such a good idea to have a dressing up box in miniature – far easier to clear up than the normal mess! I’m crocheting dolls and their clothes for Christmas presents at the moment, so hopefully they’ll be as popular as yours have been:)
