Glad you like it! The yarn is laceweight, which I find works well for this size doll and smaller. I used a 2.75mm hook. I keep my really tiny hooks for when I'm crocheting for 1/6 scale. Thanks! The blue on one sleeve--as well as the blue scarf--are meant as an unexpected touch of whimsy. It seems a strange time for IH to begin delaying. Many places are now opening for business.
