Sez the book description:
Sometimes you just want to cuddle up with a handmade doll of Mr. T! With Knitted Icons, you'll find patterns for creating dolls of the world s most beloved personalities: everyone from Madonna and Jackie O to Chairman Mao and Che Guevara. Each doll measures a substantial 10 inches tall suitable for posing on your desk, bookshelf, or other doll display.
Which puzzles me more: the notion of wanting to cuddle up with a handmade doll of Mr. T, or describing Chairman Mao as one of "the world's most beloved personalities"?
