new year new post

  • Posted on January 7, 2021 at 4:37 pm

last year was weird to say the least! it was hard to find anything to post about, and after a while i didn’t even try. here’s hoping this year goes better. what better way to start it, than by jumping down the rabbit hole of a new eatsleepknit yarnathon? once again i am trying to make it fit into my dolly plans, we’ll see if i do a better job this year….

the first fkal of the year is this cute sweater
by tif neilan.
since we are allowed to change the yarn weight, i am going to try knitting it in lace weight for meg. the real question is, can i actually follow a pattern without making any changes?

we went for a walk around the neighborhood today. annalise thought she saw a wolf, and scrambled up a tree. luckily it was just a friendly german shepherd out for a walk as well, i think she has been reading too many fairy tales πŸ˜‰

new years resolutions?

i had decided i was going to forgo the esk yarnathon this year and instead only knit stuff that has been in my design queue this year, but as usual as soon as the kals and badges are posted i start scheming to see which ones i can re-work for my dolls :doh

nandi is going through a mori-girl stage, so she asked for this wrap and hood

cricket fell in love with this basket and wants it as a bed/nest
seedpod bed

and i fell in love with this project for me. i’m planning to do it colors that coordinate with my craft room and knit up some new/favorite stitches for reference/wall art

i’m sure there will be a few more things once the girls make up their minds!
