As it has been much cooler lately I have taken a keener interest in knitting. The winter is approaching and I would so like to have warm and pretty handknits for fingers, toes, ears and necks. Right now I am concentrating on the toes. Maybe it is best to work from the bottom up?
I showed you a few balls of yarn and half started projects quite awhile ago. I just wanted to show that I finished some of them! There was enough of this candy colored yarn to whip up simple pairs of socks for both of my little chicks.
There wasn't quite enough of this yarn to make the entire socks so I grabbed a matching wool from my stash for the toes.
This little lass does have two completed, matching socks to warm her toes this winter but only had one of them on for this shot. Thank you again Mervi for this most gorgeous yarn! Funny because she is knitting socks now too. Must be a Scandinavian thing. We always have the upcoming winter on our minds and how best to prepare for it.
My shop has a distinctive summery feel to it, despite my winter preparations, with the lastest crop of hand appliquéd blossoms decking out my dolls.
Today we all went to a delightful birthday party! Lilly can still wear the beautiful dress mom made her last year.
