I have renewed my interest in knitting...
I learned some basics about 40 or 50 (!) yrs ago...
I had not done anything since then...
My BFF was my inspiration
when I saw the beautiful sweater
that she is in the process of making!
Here is a link to her blog and that post...
I realize that I will never be as good
as she is at knitting,
but I am enjoying the learning process,
and trying some new
and challenging projects.
These clothes are for my dolls that I collect.
They are small items
and go pretty fast when making them.
I like that.
I have other interests and need to divide my time
so that I can work on all of them.
I am so happy to be retired
so that I can do all these wonderful things...
|Here is a little hat. |
It will have a pompom on top
when I decide on an outfit
and the color to go with it.
|I practiced this by making a swatch.|
|So I made it into a bag for one of the dolls.|
|I made this for the handle of the bag,|
but it was too wide so I made it into a scarf...
|This was a real challenge for me...|
|This is the back...|
I'm not sure the skirt is right,
but I think it looks OK.
|I need more practice using double pointed needles...|
The instructions said to give a tug
when switching needles.
I did that, but I guess it was not hard enough. haha
More practice needed on that part!
Never did that before...

I have been referring to YouTube a lot!
It has helped me tremendously!
So, everyone have a lovely day!
