hi, I'm kinda new here, I haven't posted much, my mom is Lana

I got my love of knitting from her and she got her love of dolls from me.

(hope this isn't too many pictures)
the first two I made specially for these dolls. I love the way they turned out. I made up the pattern based on two sweaters my mom made.

The pink one is actually for a kid (my 2nd youngest niece who is 6)
but it happens to fit my doll, so I used her as a model

I'm not really pleased, the yarn was a nightmare to work with, my gauge was not even at all, but she loves pink and it's really soft, I doubt she'll notice the imperfections....
I used a pattern for this one, but I really prefer to make my own..

Wow I really love those! :inlove: The two raglans at the top with the buttons are the best. I love the colour combos.

Thanks everyone! I really enjoy knitting, it's very relaxing for me.
I have mono right now, so I can't do much besides sit around.
At least I can keep a little busy knitting.

I forgot to say that I used the magic loop for the first time on the sleeves (learned from the video I found on this web-site). It's a breeze! I now I want to try some socks with NO DPts!

:cheering: Great job! One thing I've never been able to get is the complete even-ness and control you have with your stitches. Kudos!

Back again... Did you use Knit Picks Crayon on the light pink sweater in pics 5-7? I ask because I saw another small sweater knit with that DK yarn that had the same texture. It's on this site:

This knitter modeled her sweater on a cute little stuffed penquin.

Jackie, the fluffy pink yarn is from my local Hobby Lobby.
It's Baby Bee Pitter Patter Eye Lash yarn, boo pink solid and sugarplum (lavendar) solid.
I think it would have turned out better if I had knit just a little tighter, but I found it hard to pull through and hard to keep my tension even.

(I knew the doll might freak some people out, that's why I put it in my subject)

Great job! I love them! I am hoping by next winter I can tackle some sweaters for my toddler. :XX:
