Knitting and Glasses and Dolls, Oh My!

My glasses are in at America's Best so once I can get a ride out there with one of the boys I am hoping I can stop using the Helen Keller method of knitting. I approve of the method but I am just not good at it and it sure slows me down. I can't wait to 'see' if this will help speed me along with that gorgeous sweater KAL . The roses band is coming up soon and I just am so excited to get to it.

Play Time Squeezed In

Due to a technical difficulty I spent the last day working on a side project. I left my knitting in the car, the car went to work with son. So I played with this yarn and made a doll shawl. I used the KIRI pattern, size 0 needles and probably could have done a full sized shawl for the same amount of stitches. It measures almost 14 inches across and 8 inches long at the middle back.

Lovely New Doll to Knit For

"M" showed me the way to Ellowyne and now I am in love all over again with dolls. I see all kinds of knitting and crochet work in my future for her. If anyone loves dolls and sews, knits, or crochets for them leave a comment!! I would love to see your doll friends.

I am going to knit a black shawl for her and a dress maybe with crochet thread? or tatting thread? I couldn't decide which one so chose the basic long red haired one. I also like the black hair one and the cherry koolaid haired one.

Love dolls, have Gene, Julia, Jackie, Cissy, Felicity , Isabel , and many more. I also like Breyer Horses and used to make real leather saddles for them.

Knitting Along

I decided to rip out the picot hem on the new colorwork sweater and do it over in ribbing with smaller needles. I saw so many really good ones like that so I decided I wanted mine to look more like theirs! I am working on my Fall sock. on the gusset decreases. Also planning a colorwork hat and that really is a pet project as I always wanted one. I am working on the kauni sweater sleeves too.
Also working on a cp new pair of socks. Been a busy busy week or two here.
Finally got to the eye dr also. now in 2 or 3 days am expecting new glasses and know that will help me with the knitting so pretty excited there.

Doesn't this look like fall to you?

Value Yourself

Recently I realized that no one else sees your craft like you do. I now know that less is more.
