Aspen Sleeve

The winner of my review copy of  Knit Noro: Accessories 2: 30 More Colorful Little Knits by Sixth&Spring Books is Denny Stein, who has been emailed. Thanks to all of you who entered the giveaway.

And look! I still knit!

I have finished the body of Aspen and am working on a sleeve.

But I have been spending a fair amount of time on sewing doll clothes. Like this:

This pinafore and dress are made entirely of silk, which frays like crazy! So it was less than wonderful to create, but I do love the results.

And this, which I made without a pattern:

I used a set of fat quarters in coordinating colors and some vintage eyelet trim.

And the little prince sleeps through it all.



  1. Your doll dresses are adorable! Each one is perfect! What a wonderful project to be involved in!

  2. Such pretty dresses, especially the silk outfit. Good job, Wendy.

  3. Barbara A. says:

    Wendy! You do such amazing work! Just gorgeous!

  4. Susan Cawley says:

    How many dresses/outfits can you make with one set of fat quarters? Makes the dresses lovely.

    Wendy – Guess I’ll have to buy this book since I was so busy looking at the pictures, I didn’t notice the time. Yes, I looked at it last week but couldn’t decide. Finally did, I liked 8 out of the 12. I’m an accessory person……..goes much faster and I love Noro.
    Doll dresses I’ve been into for years. Aren’t they fun? Yours are gorgeous!!! Keep up the good work, you’ll be making a lot of little girls happy, happy. (Shouldn’t each doll have at least 2 or 3 dresses though?) joke
    And I love your Loki. Finally got a Rag Doll from a shelter with your advice in Feb 16.. She was about one year old and was so thin I feared she would die. She now weighs over 9# and is so lovable. Every day I wonder what she must have gone through. She won’t anymore.
    Thanks for your advice and pics.

  6. Oh…the pinafore is my favorite so far.

  7. Mary Lou Keenan says:

    Such lovely knitting and dolly clothes!

  8. Your doll clothes are adorable. But I’ve such a wicked turn of mind that I wonder why the Little Prince isn’t dressed to the nines! Trying real hard not to picture that….

  9. Second one cloth seems best looking as it is stiched in unique format.
