Third Times the Charm

I am currently working on my third doll sweater. These are so much fun to make. Such a fast project! Love that immediate gratification. Anyway, I have made some minor adjustments each time. I still have just a little bit more tweaking to do to feel like I have finished the pattern but it will be ready soon. Look for it early next week.Read more

Dolly Sweater

Just another teaser...

Over break I have been working on some new projects too. The first one I am sharing is this cute sweater I came up with for our 12" homemade dolls. Fairy had found a sweater on a stuffed bear and switched it to her doll (although it was a bit big) and of course Pixie wanted one too. Using the bear sweater as a reference point I designed this cardigan pattern (the one pictured still needs buttons) which fits much better than the borrowed bear sweater.

I am working on getting the pattern written up in a way which might actually allow someone else a chance of following it. I should have it ready in the next week or two. I am also working on a pattern for doll leggings. Stay tuned.Read more

Knit Basket Weave Dishcloth

In another couple of weeks Michelle and I are starting a knitting group. To begin with, we'll be meeting once a month for a little knitting, a little chatting and a little wine. What could be lovelier, right? Most of the women are new to knitting. A couple know the basics but have never completed the first ubiquitous scarf that all first time knitters think they should make. First off, a scarf? Really! Unless it is one of the one skein wonders, it can take a new knitter the better part of a year to complete an arduous scarf. Definitely NOT what a first time knitter needs to tackle! And second, there is a great deal of repetition and little skill development. So, we've come up with a couple quick projects to help teach the basics and give some needed quick gratification!

We are introducing the beginners to a one skein cotton dishcloth. We will have the absolute novices do a garter stitch square, but for those that have a basic knowledge, we'll have them start on this simple basket weave design. We are also thinking of headbands and coffee cup cozies. If anyone out there has...Read more
