So grab your knitting needles and crochet hooks, and start making some cute stuff!!!

Welcome to the KH KAL/CAL, both of you! :hug:

Last night, I made a quick toy, to get our KAL going.

A cute little Hula Hand Puppet. The free pattern is on the Lion Brand website.

It only took a couple hours to make, and it's so cute! :)

Not tea party related, but I've been wanting to do this one for a long time, too. Francois

Good plan, Penny!

This is a great opportunity to get a start on some of our holiday knitting!

OK, my friends. I'm two up now. You all need to catch up!

Here's the dress I made for a Barbie doll, using a free online pattern called "Summer Sorbet Dress for Barbie".

I used Bernat Baby yarn, with teeny tiny needles. It went quicker than I thought it would.

Cute, Sandy!

I wish my nieces played with Barbie so I could make some clothes.
