Blythe Doll Knitting


Good Morning sweet Blog visitors. 

I really thought I'd have a lot more Easter craft to share with you in this past week but I was distracted with some Dolly sized knitting. I totally lost all interest in Blythe for a few weeks there, my poor girls just sat in the studio waiting. A few things contributed to this but I don't really want to get into them right now. I encouraged myself to take out one doll, change her clothes and put her back each day so none would get stained or damaged. Then once I was knitting my neck warmer the dolly ideas and mojo started to flow again.


I purchased a pattern I had sitting in my Etsy cart and set to work with the smallest needles I have, not quite as small as instructed though. Jane's patterns are beautifully written and laid out, she has some pattern freebies available on her blog if you want to give one a try. I have made up the matching 'cosy comforts' sweater too but as I am not working in the recommended gauge, they don't fit together too nicely but they do both fit blythe and are lovely. I just took advantage of the great Suzy Hausfrau Easter weekend sale and ordered a beautiful variety of yarns in different textures and colours that I hope to work up some sets with in coming weeks/months. Once I wash and embellish this dress I'll pop it in my Etsy shop. 

I do hope you have a very GOOD Friday and spend it in a way that will buoy your spirits. x
