A friend of mine who only had one child (a boy) has just discovered dolls
for herself (she never played with them as a kid). A friend of hers works
for American Girl Dolls, and she got given one of those in her favourite
historical period. The first thing she did was knit the doll a pair of
cable-stitch sox and a pair of matching cable-stitch mittens. Now if her
son never gets married and has daughters it's OK, because SHE's got the
doll to knit, crochet, and sew historical for.
