Anyways...I knit a bit more on my green sweater. I'm knitting this one so I can help my mom and sister knit theirs. It's kind of funny since it has soo many cables that they are knitting this as their first sweaters and really haven't even knit much before...oh well...they picked the pattern.
But I do really like how it's turning out.
That sweater is looking awesome and snuggly.
I finally jumped on the sock bandwagon! That was the whole reason I took up knitting
Got two pairs on the go, but only one will be done in time for the sockathon's end.
Socks are AWESOME!!!!
I never thought I'd knit socks, and yet I have, and even for dolls! Socks are just addicting once you knit a pair.
I've been knitting a fair amount, though I had three weeks away from home that limited what I could work on.
I sewed the shoulders and finished the neck on my purple sweater!
I swear that color change does not exist in real life. I think it's because I'm reusing this yarn from an earlier attempt and that first skein was washed once, resulting in a slight texture change that scatters the flash differently.
I also started the sleeves.
And I'm still plugging away on that sewing thread project...
I have about a quarter inch left to knit, maybe a half if I decide it needs to be a bit longer when I hold it up against the doll. It's a ridiculously simple pattern but o so boring to knit, especially at tiny size where you can't really let yourself zone out.
And I started this yesterday when I realized my doll has nothing to wear to model the latest shawl project with. I don't mind photographing her nude but for her shoes and the shawl but I don't think the pin-up shots would be suitable for places like Ravelry. XD
It's just sock yarn, #1 needles, and linen stitch. I'll have to work out how I'm going to do the decreases to the waist to get a nicely fitted skirt. I may take the easy way out and switch to another stitch pattern, say stockinette, and then do the waist band in linen stitch again.
And for the last, it counts as a WIP if it's blocking right?
shawl pattern modified for a doll. I used single ply from Caron Country yarn and 00 (1.75mm) needles and worked the shouldertte version with only 2 repeats of the yucca pattern. I also switched the edging for the alternate narrow version the designer put up on Ravelry. I removed most of the beads called for (using 10/0 seed beads in my case) and used 6/0 "e" beads instead of nupps.
I had also started a skirt for my doll using the edging from this pattern
for the hem, but the yarn I have is variegated and the pattern got lost in the color so that was frogged. I do like that edging so I will find something to use it on eventually!
