Today, we're going to be working on Mini Mimi's arms and legs.

On a side note, I've been suffering from some this mosquito bite on my arm for the last few weeks. I react badly to mosquito bites, but this year has been the worst. I've been putting on some anti-itching cream that's supposed to take away my itch, but there's this rash that just wouldn't go away.

It turns out that I'm allergic to the anti-itching cream. The mosquito bite has already healed, but I have this ugly gigantic rash on my arm that is crazy itchy.

Life is so ironic when you're allergic to your anti-itching cream and makes you itchier than ever. Sadly, before I found out about this, I was lathering on this anti-itch cream on some other mosquito bites on my leg. So now I have to deal with those too.

Summer, right?

OK, enough about my misery. Here's the crochet pattern for Mini Mimi's arms and legs. If you need a reference for a list of materials, you can click here.

You can cut and fasten the underwear colour yarn because you will continue the rest of the doll with skin colour yarn. If you are using the half colour change method, start working the skin colour onto the top of Round 18.
