I've had a bit of a knitters block this week. The bag I was making ran out of wool so I had to frog it (hand dyed wool, so it's not like I could just order some more) I've decided to use that delicious wool for my next project.
My next project is a doll pattern that cost
me my Mum a fortune! It's a pattern I saw at the knitting and stitch show a few years back. I loved it but didn't buy it because I felt it was a little overpriced. When I got home I regretted not buying it and scoured the net trying to find it. I did find the company (who are based in Australia from what I remember) and they didn't respond to my email, so I decided to wait until the next knitting and stitch show.
To cut an already long story short, I couldn't find it at the show the subsequent years, but thankfully knitted.com stocked it one year and it happened to be near my Birthday so my Mum bought me it as a gift.
Only now have I decided to give it a try.
The pattern is Hand made dolls and accessories by ak traditions. Aren't they just gorgeous! I can't wait to finish this...my eldest has already claimed it and yesterday demanded that I get knitting (I don't knit when my children are awake)
I've finished the front, I'm now working on the back. The pattern is really easy and would be great for a beginner that wanted to make something that looks amazing at the end.
That's it on the WIP front. If you'd like to see more WIP's head on over to Tami's Amis
