I seem to be having startitis when it comes to conventional knitting, you know, socks etc..so...I thought I'd knit a rag doll.
I know....still knitting tho this is purely a whimsical project.
Well, I scoured the internet but couldn't find anything I liked so I came up with this.
The Grand Poobah said to just leave her face blank. I don't often listen to him, but this time thought I'd throw caution to the wind.
Sassy is 19" tall and 8" across her chest. I wanted something completely washable and so I used sock yarn., doubled. Just, bits and pieces I had lying around.
I used sz#3 and sz#7 knitting needles and she is nearly seamless. I had the devil of a time trying to figure out where the arms should go and if I ever tried to do another ....well lets just say I didn't write anything down so I probably never will...
I love the lace edging on her dress....very cute. (I used the cast off from the 'Truly Tasha Shawl" by Nancy Bush.) I did an I cord for her hairband. The extra pic is because I just had to show off the flower button on the back of her dress.
She isn't wearing underwear..naught, naughty...maybe one of these days I'll knit a pair.
She is named Sassy because my eldest grandson said if his Mom had a baby and it was a girl he'd call her Sassy.... (Don't think that's ever gonna happen! heehee)
My next project is an old afghan I had started in the 1980's and never completed. It's an Irish Knits pattern from an old Woman's Day magazine. I used some type of acrylic and it's a lavender colour. I know I could donate it to the Salvation Army but I'll try and finish it. At least I'll have something on my needles.
Happy knitting everyone.
