Wadda You Know....

I'm a Yarn Ho!
I've been trying to make clothes for my angel doll for the past few days. It's been a process. I made a cute little halter top, but decided against it due to the fact that it made the doll look more like a pre-teen than I wanted. So i started to make another mesh like skirt, but didn't like that either. After many different tries and several episodes of CSI:Las Vegas, I have come up with a cute idea for a dress with a ruffle at the bottom. I've started knitting it in a deep purple color. the dress will be short sleeved and end right at the "knees" of the doll. After that I have two quick wings to make up and sew on and then the face to stitch. Then it'll be on to the next doll.

I found a pattern on that liked. A knit dust bunny, very cute. It said it was knit, however when I read through the pattern it was actually chrochet. Bummer, due to the fact that I don't chrochet. But I bet I could convert it to knitting easy enough.

Well my dress is calling me back to it's side. Happy knitting everyone!

PS Shane tracked where my camera is in the mail....It left Scarborough Maine today!!!!! So only a day or two left before it will be in my lovely little hands! I'm so excited about it I've been dreaming about it every night! I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!

Will post pics of finished doll soon!
