Maya is 14" from the top of her head to the tip of her tail. She is distinguished by her lovely, shapely figure and beautifully detailed hands.
Her torso (as shown) is Bernat Cashmere in the color Rain. Her tail is Red Heart Multi in Ocean.
Her hair is Lion Brand moonlight and another mohair. Her seaweed is Lopi Lite and her crown is a metallic mix.
She takes about 4-5 hours to complete

Long, long ago, far, far away, when the subway cost a quarter and the corner drugstore was also an ice cream parlor where a little girl sipped vanilla egg creams, her mother, who made her wonderful clothes, showed her how to crochet. Her father taught her how to solder and make a tuner.
