Still of the night, I work on a secret sweater

Last night, after my daughter was asleep, I started working on a special project. It’s a sweater I’m making for an 18″ doll. My daughters best friend,O, has three American Girl dolls, and because of the play dates at O’s house, she’s become quite enamored with them. I still haven’t purchase the doll, but I’m starting to create some lovely outfits; crochet, knit, and sewn. Of course I’m making a few items for O too, but for her… I’ll most likely stay away from knitting since her grandmother does that, and focus on some cute crocheted outfits for her dolls.

I’ve decided to include beads in some of the dolls outfits, and have already sketched a festive beret where I’ll be adding more bead work.  Of course I have a ton of beads. I love making jewelry and still (occasionally) design commissioned jewelry items. I’ve already set aside some special beads for my daughter and her best friends outfit.

For those unfamiliar with how you add beads to knitting, check out the above informative beaded tutorial by Cat Bordhi.

    Q – Wonderful surprise! I actually cut the end off of a beading needle. It’s stiffer than the floss and I just find it easier with my arthritis. Love to knit with beads. Haven’t crochet with beads though.

    Wow!!! That’s a loud heavy metal rock song. Sounds like something by Led Zeppelin or some other band. If this title, the song that comes to my mind right away would be this one:

    Hiya! Just checkin’ in! Hope you had a nice weekend :) It’s was a busy and short one for us!

    Went to dinner on Friday night with another couple – it was lovely – that is rare for us to do, actually, so I was super excited! Then Saturday we took our Wildtree stuff to a regional winery! We did well! Then yesterday DH and his bro traveled to Buffalo to get a new guitar for him while my mom and I did some re-arranging of our Wildtree stock! We found some neat containers and I think they will work well! Last night I made the dish featured on my blog today!
