It's been a while since I last posted here. Since I'm starting a knitting club at school this year, I've been really busy knitting things to get the kids excited. Anyway, My son has been begging me for a pair of socks for the longest time. He keeps seeing me knitting for everyone but him. So I decided to make his socks before I work on anything else. So here they are. If you would like to see the rest of my FO's of the last two months go to http://flickr.com/photos/19934031@N00/. I'm sorry to put a link but there are just too many to upload the photos here.

BTW, this is my 2nd pair of socks. I made them with recycle yarn from the first pair that I made for myself but they were too big.

:hug:

Thank you guys! You are very kind :hug:.

My son loves his socks!

The kelly dolls, I just buy them when they are on sale at target. Usually right after the holidays. The dresses, I don't really have patterns for them. It takes me longer to write a pattern than to actually knit or crochet one. I just get inspired by girls dresses that I see on magazines or in the stores and I just start making them. Sometimes I start with an idea and as I'm making them, a bunch of ideas popped into my head and I end up making a total diffrent outfit.

I always wanted to write my own patterns but I find it tedious and time consuming. Is there any software that I can use to write the patterns?

:muah:

I am absolutely amazed by your kelly doll clothes. I used to sew clothes for mine out of odd bits of cloth. They are sitting in a box in my closet right now, untouched for atleast 3 years. You have inspired me to knit/crochet clothes for them!

p.s. I have the long redheaded doll with pink hair ties too!

edit: just found her. It seems I took off the ties and wrapped her in green thread to make a dress :teehee: Took awhile to snip through that!

Thanks! You got inspired...that's awesome! Maybe next time I go to NY we can get together and design new clothes for Kelly. What part of NY are you? I lived in Queens for many years (Forest Hills, Rego Park and Long Island City).

I read in another thread that you are starting a knitting club at your High School this year. That's way too cool!!!
I'm starting a knitting club at the elementary school where my son goes. Open house was last week and a lot of kids were interested. I'm really excited! It should be a lot of fun!
