Kniting project DONE!

Finally. I have had the pieces to this project finished for over a week and I finally sat down to sew things together.

Complete! Bath robe for a doll

This was a lot of fun. I learned a lot. I could never remember how to cast on stitches (so that was nice to re-learn). The knit stitch I could remember, but I needed a refresher on how to purl.

While I have never knit anything before, I was taught to knit and purl a long time ago. (wait! I knit a purse out of fabric about 4 year ago – never finished it – might have to resurrect that and finish it!)

This doll robe was a great project. Small enough to finish in our class (6 sessions). I learned to increase and decrease. I learned how to use the holders (can’t remember if that is the right name for them – those big kilt safety pin looking things. I used markers. I learned how to sew things together (the sleeves in this project). Also, learned a  lot about reading a pattern. Overall, I learned A LOT!

Ingrid doing a little modeling on the side

Ingrid is modeling the bath robe for you, although it looks more like a nice sweater jacket on her – quite stylish I think, but the color is all wrong for her! Ingrid is a doll I have had since I was a very little girl (I am going to guess around 5). My mom tells me I came up with her name all on my own.

Thanks for helping me Ingrid.

On to knitting something else. I need to work on a few more things now to keep the knitting fresh in my head. I have found some patterns for making squares on an afghan and a few others for dishrags that will help me with pattern reading and practicing the different combinations of stitches too. But I must confess that I really want to make socks! I don’t know where that desire comes from, I know I just want to knit them. Gram used to knit socks for use, maybe that is why I want to…I just don’t know.

Sincerely, Emily

    I have knitted sock before and it was fun. The hardest part for me was completing the second one. By the time I got to it the drive to finish wanes. I found if you knit both socks at the same time it was easier for me. Can’t wait to see what you decide to knit next.
