Joining in with Jenny today for Yarn Along
~knitting for little ones~
It’s been so long since my last yarn along! So happy to have a little more time to knit and for a baby no less, my favorite kind of projects!!
The Pebble pattern this pattern is quick and easy. I love the design of this pattern. Knit all in one, from the bottom up and finishing off at the shoulders. It was interesting. I have never knit a pattern constructed this way and that made this pattern ever more fun.
I love the button band on the right side. The wooden buttons just really make this little vest shine. I can’t wait to see baby Finn in this. So cute.
*so hard to take good photos in January!
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.

I finished the Poppy Cardigan for my daughter’s doll. I love this pattern and I will certainly use it again. It is really quick and easy and very cute. I am loving the yarn that I used and I wish I could make myself the same sweater in a grown up size. It just feels so nice.
I found another really cute shoe pattern that I know I will use again. Talk about fast…and cute!
When I saw The Rosy Baby Booties pattern I knew this would be a perfect choice for a Mary Jane type shoe. I had hoped to make the covered buttons but the yarn I used to make it was too thick. Instead I went with a dark brown “leather-like” button and it worked quite well. I used Loft from Brooklyn Tweed for the main body of the pattern and Martha Stewart’s Merino for the contrast. I downsized the pattern and used a size 2 needle. I think it worked out well and really makes this school outfit complete, which is what my daughter requested.
She is sassy…
I can’t wait to see what everyone else is working on this week.. I need a new project!!

Not too much knitting going on here, I have been working diligently making my daughter her new doll. Her birthday is Tuesday and I am running out of time.
We’ll see, I seem to work best under pressure. On my needles I have the Poppy Sweater pattern, this is going to be a great sweater. I love the yarn and the pattern. I am so close to done..
I just need a few more hours in the day.. don’t we all??
~ A little peek~
I am planning on taking Friday off so I can really spend some time with this little one. I think she is going to be cute! I hope :)
Joining Jenny in her Yarn Along post’s.
I am so happy to be able to report that I have completed the cute little blue doll sweater. My gosh, it is so cute and cozy. You can see the pattern and information on the Ravelry link.
This week, I am still on doll clothes. My daughter’s birthday is quickly coming up and she has informed me that she wants a waldorf doll with red hair and green eyes. She also would like her doll to have some clothes that look like school clothes, a grey sweater, blue skirt, a white shirt. Yes, of course so, a grey sweater is on the needles. This time I am working on this pattern, and I am trying to remember this yarn, the tag has been lost.. I believe it is Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed Yarn. I think.
I am also working on another pair of baby booties, or dolly shoes. I just love this pattern it is most definitely my go to pattern.
I am on the hunt for a slipper pattern that my grandmother used to make for making our slippers. It was a simple pattern that always had a pom pom on the end of it. I know I’ve seen such patterns, but I need to spend some time finding the right one. I think that would just go perfect with my little nightie. Maybe something like this or this is really cute too.
As far as reading.. I need to gather some books this weekend and perhaps make a new tote, I have jury duty all next week. I am not sure how I feel about all of that, but I know I have to do my civic duty. There is a long list of what you can not bring, so I believe I will be reading quite a bit. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone is reading..

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??

Still working on my little blue sweater. Just the sleeves to go. I am so slow :(
I just need to bind off and start the sleeves. Maybe tonight?? maybe.
Took a little time to make a cute little mouse: love. So cute. I guess it took part of an afternoon. She is so very cute, if I say so myself! Pattern link here~ Marisol a knitted mouse~
I have some new projects in the que that I want to start on, so many lovely things but these are on my mind right now.
shawl pattern and so are you so cute!
and look at this beautiful sweater, oh my Gnarled Oak Cardigan This is a for sure. Love it.
Reading: my grandma’s books. She gives them to me and I read a little before bed each night. It’s like my nightcap. Slows my mind down for a really good sleep!
