Which Came First: The Doll, or her Clothes?

The Clothes, of course! We can't have a nekkid doll!

Who by the way, is patiently waiting for me to finish her second arm. Then I can stuff and assemble her, making both of us very happy! It shouldn't be too much longer.

But I already have my next dilemma: what color will her hair be? Decisions, decisions...

I have pictures!

Believe it or not, I actually picked up my knitting needles! I took three separate projects with me to the beach for those down times, and I only touched one. But I touched it a LOT! See?

This is the smallest size of the Rambling Rows afghan. I don't have any baby boys to knit for, so I'm thinking it may end us as a lap blanket for the Dempsey Center. I wonder how many months (or YEARS!) it will take to finish now that I'm back in my busy, everyday world!

Here's a closer look at the squares. I'm using an unknown fiber (likely acrylic) from a Mill Ends bag. I love the blue, brown and cream color scheme. There's been a tad bit of pooling, but I can live with it. I can't wait to see it finished!

This top photo is better for actual color.

This photo is better for texture. Lots of garter stitch!!

I also have some doll/clothes progress, but I'll save those for another post :-)

Happy knitting!!

I'm back!

Fresh off a week's vacation, I have lots to say for a change! After sorting through a gaggle of emails, I'll post goodies, with pics :-) It's good to be home!

Long Time, No Post

Hey y'all! An actual knitting post! WOO HOO!!

Just thought I'd check in, since I am doing a tad of knitting. I pulled a WIP from the depths of my closet, and am actually making progress! It's a doll from "Toys to Knit" that I started, um, years ago.

I'm a Fearless Knitter now, so I decided to take those flat pieces with scads of seaming and convert them to in-the round pieces. So far so good! I had to buy Size 3 circulars for it, and here I have to say:

Mrs. Saleslady at Yarn Paradise that unfortunately I don't remember your name,

THANK YOU for showing me the Addi Turbo needles. I am in love with them, and since you are responsible, you are officially my new best friend.:-)

Givin' Knit Away

More to come. Really. Pinky swear :-)

Happy 4th and Happy Knitting, y'all!
