WIP Wednesday: Go, Speed Knitter, Go!


Deja vu?

It may appear that I am working on the same knitting project but don't let your eyes fool you. I actually finished up K's birthday sweater a couple days ago (I already packed it and forget to take a picture) and am now working on C's matching sweater. I *hope* to have it done by the end of the week so I may start work on yet another knitted sweater, but that one is a surprise for someone so I can't talk about it just yet.

I have had the chance to sew here and there and I am finally finishing up my projects for the road trip. I hope the girls like them.


K's night night baby

Night night baby is almost done. I am finishing up the embroidery on her face, and baking the millet (to stuff her with - she's a 'heavy' baby), then I just need to put her all together.



K's secret surprise project has been on the shelf for much to long. Luckily, it's now perfect as a road trip surprise. I am nearing completion on this project as well. Just a few minor stitches here and there, but I honestly don't think it was worth the suspense. I can always fix it up later once we are settled in Oregon, at least I keep telling myself that!

Happy creating everyone!

ETA: Happy Birthday to me! :) Thank you Marina for my Flickr gift! I will put it to good use, ASAP! You are much too kind!!

What a sweet baby doll, even if she is just a head so far. And happy birthday! I hope it has been wonderful!

I love the night night doll. Question: out of curiosity why do you bake the millet?

Hope you had a wonderful day!!

Thank you for your kind words everyone!! <3

Praire girl - You know what, I am not exactly sure! :p I am just following the instructions that came with the pattern (It's from Joys Waldorf Dolls), and she doesn't state why we need to bake it. Weird, huh?

Melissa - I posted th pic on flickr for you with the info :) It's from Ostheimer.

Teresa Jensen - We got it from our local unfinished wood store called Good Wood, it's amish made. HTH!
