Pom Pom Sweater for the Make-Along Doll

The new knitting pattern for the Make-Along Pom Pom Sweater is up in the shop now. Phew, that was hard! Huge thanks to my pattern testers Carrie and Yvonne. Yvonne is an excellent tech editor and really helped me with all the details.

This sweater is worth the effort of making all those little bobbles. There is something seriously huggable about a soft cloth doll in a nubby sweater. I’ve made two so far but really want one for all … More

Free Cardigan knitting pattern for the Make-Along doll

free doll cardigan knitting pattern

Tiny, cozy sweaters knit for handmade dolls, it doesn’t get much cuter than that! Please enjoy this knitting pattern for a cardigan for the Make-Along doll. It is knit in sock yarn with size 2 needles. Tiny, but not too crazy small. It is a different version than the sweater I replicated from my great grandmother’s pattern which involves a lot of seaming. This one is knit from top down in one piece and sleeves can be knit in the … More

I knit a Halloween kitty

It’s raining, it’s dark, my house is a mess and there’s nowhere to take a cute photo but if I worry about that it’ll be another 3 months before I blog again. So here’s gray cloudy day kitty. Our school’s bookfair was last week and I was co-chair so I spent many hours at school. I brought Jess Hutchison’s knitted toys pattern book … More

crocheted hexagons

I have started another over ambitious project in a medium I know nothing about, crochet. After weeks of futsing with it here and there I think I figured out how to crochet a hexagon. Sometimes they turn out right and other times, doing the exact same thing, I get slightly different results. That happens when I crochet. So I barely know how to do this but I think I want to make an afghan of hexagons. I should totally go … More

back to school is stressful so I knit a scarf

I love a good bulky yarn. This one is Red Heart Grande yarn from Joanns. I think I've knit 10 scarves like this one. Oh well, what's one more. This one got me through the first week of school. Now I need more yarn. Back to school is tough this year. I wasn't ready. I keep feeling like this is some sort of test run and they'll be back home and I won't have to worry about, well, I don't even … More
