This could be the biggest breakthrough in knitted dolls reproduction theres ever been ! Yea ! Shirley starts with a photograph roight, but that doesnt give her loike, the depth she needs to create the real impression of the dolls, so, what she does is, she photographs them roight, from two, two other angles, aye ! Theyre minutely different. Now, the real skill you see comes, in the combination of those three photographs roight. Scientifically, its something that, aahh, ... ... how dye get over 'ere ?

I've just seen this - howay man, that's like some kind of FANTASTIC dream man! I suspect if you go into mass (minor) production you'll get some orders from here. Or how about an auction... ;)

I'm wondering if I can adopt these chaps? They'd look fantastic in my study...
