~Yarn Along~

Gosh, it’s been a while since I’ve yarned along.  I made this cute little Little Jenny Wren Pinafore eek, so cute!

I used some very lovely yarn from Brambleberry Yarns,this yarn is English Rose. Isn’t it beautiful?  I loved knitting each row, watching as  the color softly changes from one to the next. It is so pretty and soft.  As I am looking at this yarn I can smell lavender. Cynthia tucked in a little sachet of lavender in among the yarns.


I hope to have time to make my next doll. I have one in mind that I really want to bring to life.

Joining Ginny this week.

Joining Jenny today.

I’m not able to say that I have completed my little blue sweater, I don’t know why it is taking so long.  It is going to be really cute I do know that!

Maybe it’s because I have my mind on so many projects I just can’t get one thing done completely. My mind is swirling all the time with possibilities. Gosh, it’s exhausting really.

For example there is this little pattern I can’t tell you how much I love this pattern. It’s great for doll shoes. It is quick and really easy. I guess it takes about hour uninterrupted to make one bootie. The problem is finding a solid hour in the day, but whatever, this is a great pattern.

I promise I will have that sweater done by next week, I will have it done, by hook or by crook.

What are you working on this week??

~Yarn Along~

I’m excited again to join Jenny again for her  Yarn Along. So fun looking at all of the projects.  This week I read The Shop on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber I loved this one. I love to read about knitting and there is plenty in this book! On my nightstand you will also find this Remembering Adelia: Quilts Inspired by her Diary.

As far knitting, I’m done with the little yellow vest. It’s cute. Too big.. I should have gone a few needle size’s. I knew that, but didn’t do it. Ugh. Cotton is not my favorite yarn. Too stretchy. I love the pattern, it is so quick and easy. I will try again in wool.

This week I am working on this Acadia pattern I love it so far. So cute!I am using a wool bamboo yarn. It’s so soft.

Can’t wait to see all the other projects!

~ You gotta have Faith~

Meet my new little friend Faith.

I love her.  Her picture is blurry, but I still think she is beautiful.

So hard to get a good picture.

She loves to be outside, barefoot with the wind blowing her long hair. Her mom made her put it up in ponytails.

She loves the Autumn light.

She loves to smell the flowers.

Details:

Waldorf Inspired Doll pattern from:: Growing up Sew Liberated. So cute!

Hair from::  my FAVORITE yarn lady, Camilla.

Mixed with a blonde mix from Dancing Rain Dolls, which unfortunately is no longer in business :(

Peasant dress, my own pattern.

Leggings, I modified with 2 layers of ruffles from this pattern.

Sweater is::  Little Kina   I modified the pattern a bit by knitting a long sleeve version.

I named my Waldorf Inspired doll Faith because I made her at the same time we were facing personal challenges at home.  Through prayer and faith, today things are much improved. I have George Michael singing in my head, but it’s true, You Gotta Have Faith, Faith, Faith.

I really loved making this doll, she is my 2nd Waldorf Inspired doll. The first was from a kit from Dancing Rain dolls, the kit came with a pre-formed head. This time I bought my supplies from Weir Dolls. The head was a challenge but I think it came out just fine.  I foresee making more little friends, oh yes I do.
