Yarn Along

I finished it yesterday!
I had an audience as I worked.

"What IS she doing?"
"Is that a leg?"
"Where's the face, Mom?"

Soon a doll appeared.

"Who is THAT for?"

I wasn't too thrilled with the top of the head.  (I did do something wrong and know for next time) :)

But it was fun and I'm looking forward to his wife/sister being complete.

I also crocheted a hat my niece Kati taught me.  This is after the third attempt.  It still is a little too big but I know how to do it all by myself now :)
(I had too keep asking Kati along the way.)

I have three small guys in line for their new hat to be made.

As you can see, I'm still reading the same book.  I only read one chapter at night (when I can stay awake) or read it in the morning, if I didn't make it through the whole chapter the night before.  So this one has been slow going.

My days are so busy and have many other things to do that are more important, so for this stage in life,
I limit my "fun" reading time.
I love to read fiction but it can use way too much of my time.
So while my days are still filled with housework and schooling, I set boundaries
on my reading time.

This book has been rather interesting.
  If it's based on facts,, there are some strange people out there!  :)


  1. such a cute knit, loving your blog x

  2. that's really cute doll! and really nice hat :) - hat was my first crocheting project ever - had to start it 2 times :)

  3. I just created & crocheted pink & red hearts put them on a vine wreath & hung them on my front door. what fun. Your dolls are going to be really cute
    I read the outsider & 2 others in the series It's a shame that so many people are unaware of the Grace of God

  4. Cute!! I love little knitted dolls.

  5. That's a CUTE doll. Is it knit?
    Rosey gave Dad a book that Pastor Bish wrote about his cancer. It is real good. He writes good. It's interesting too because we know him. I alwys like to read a little Bible before I go to bed and a little of Pst. B. book and sudoku. The sudoku usually doesn't last a minute before I'm out. Most nights.
    The hats are nice too. Do you have a pattern for the doll and does it have clothes? You are so creative. Love you.

  6. Your little doll is coming along so great! I have yet to try making a little stuffed doll or toy but I can't wait to make something like this for my little girl :)

  7. Cute knits!! I can't wait to knit toys. I have that itty bitty toys knitting book, but haven't made anything out of it yet.
