Designed and Ready to Go

I finished the Botswana doll, and am ready to send him off to Gaborone. The sample doll, pattern and some yarn are going to the Otse Homebased Care Society. This group of women are learning to knit, and hope to make some of the Botswana dolls for sale.

The doll is 9 inches tall, and is made with six colors of Elann Peruvian Highland Wool. The doll's shirt mimics the flag of Botswana, and he wears a red HIV/AIDS awareness ribbon.

The Otse group is also called "Rwadisanyang Merwalo" which means "bearing each other's burden's." I am very proud to make this small gift to them, and hope that it benefits the women and their families.

That is a terrific doll. You really put a lot of thought into it, and it shows.
