Sample Knitted Doll

I teach knitting (along with other fiber arts) to kids ages 8-15.  I am always trying to make new things for them to see as possibilities for new projects.  I am so amazed at what they can do!

This little doll is a pretty easy one to make.  Each piece is knitted flat, sewn and stuffed.  Isn’t she so sweet?

Sashay Scarf Ta Da!

I started this scarf a little bit ago and first blogged about it here.  I have been working on it a little bit at a time with the intention of finishing it before my daughter came home for Thanksgiving.  All the crocheting was done, but I still had all those pesky ends to weave in.

Lots of ends.

Diligently, a little at a time, the ends were woven in and the scarf was finished.

I really loved the way this came together.  The combination of the granny squares and the stripes that connected two sets of granny squares was just the right amount of change needed to keep this project interesting to me.  I can totally see myself making another one of these at some point.

Once I gave it to her, she didn’t take it off!

It came with us to her brother’s orchestra concert.  And it was worn on the plane home.  I’m so thrilled that she loves the finished scarf!!  I’m sad she went back to college, but I don’t have long to wait to see her again – she comes home for Christmas break soon!!
