The Rasta Patch Kid

8 10 2006

Here’s another Hat For a Kid! This one is for my niece, the delightful Miss Emily. The Froofy Hat, from The Garter Belt again! I love it. It was a very easy and quick knit. The only thing that made me mumble GRRR was my slipped stitches wanted to be ornery. I had to readjust so that the loops were all even. Not bad, though! It looks like a misshapen blob, but for real, it’s cute. I didn’t have a 3 year-old kid around to try it out.

Here it is being worn by Zarah Priscilla, the Cabbage Patch Kid I got when I was 9. That makes this doll….. 23 years old. Holy crap. I’ve just ruined my day.

AW, I had a Cabbage Patch doll when I was a kid too! We used to read together. I wish I still had her!

Mine was Kelly Anastasia! She lives with my parents. I got a boy one for Ry last year for Christmas and he named it Baby Jesus.

I never got a Cabbage Patch Kid when I was young. “Too Expensive” was the excuse. Instead, I got a “Blueberry Patch Kid” made out of nylon stockings with painted leather patches for eyes. For real. His name was Bo Berry. Yup. Made out of nylons. Bo had a lot of “scars” and “trips to the emergency room.”

Mine was Elva Melissa and then a year later I got a boy who I renamed Michael. No middle name. πŸ™‚ Mine are about as old as yours. Dont’ feel bad.

Cute hat!!!!

I can top Turtlegirl–my mom MADE my cabbage patch doll–out of those old nylons and painted the eyes on. Jesus, I had a knock off of a knock off.

Next hat, you better let Zarah Priscilla light one up! The Po Po doesn’t read this blog do they?!

Adorable hat. And to make you feel better: I still have a nightie that’s 23 years old. I know this because I ‘inherited'(read: snagged) it from my mom, who bought it before she went to the hospital to give birth to my younger sister. She’s 23.

This hat is really lovely, and just perfect for a kid! And yes, I’m with turtlegirl76 here, I also never got a Cabbage Patch Kid when I was young – of course they had to be imported back then and thus were just a tad too expensive. But I’d have so loved to get one ;(

I can top turtlegirl and Bezzie – I never got a Cabbage Patch Doll because I was already too damn old to have a Cabbage Patch Doll.

Feel better? Good, ’cause now I just ruined MY day…


P.S. Nice job on the hat!

Ok, look, I was going to go on Ye Olde Internette and find some pre-loved Kids and mail them out all stealthy-like, but dang, y’all, there are too many stories about childhoods devoid of these dollies.
Perhaps this will be a case when it’s the thought that counds.
