Hey all!  I don't know if anyone else out there is into Barbie knits... here are some of the tops I've knitted so far.  They're small and fast to finish - so very satisfying.  But it does take a while to get used to size 0 needles and knitting with embroidery thread.  I'm especially into vintage style knits and vintage Barbies.  I'm working on Ken clothes too!

I actually made the display case that you see in the background of the photo; it has 3 different rooms, decorated with vintage wallpaper.  I'll post that up in a different category.

Size 0 needles are really tough! My mom was a crazy good knitter. For my doll house when I was a kid, she knit a blanket out of thread using toothpicks. She used those size 0 needles to make those beaded knit purses.

I used to crochet Barbie clothes when I was a kid.  Smiley
