Yarn Along with a test knit!

Joining up with Ginny for the Yarn Along.

I'm test knitting a pattern for the fabulous Emily. The thumbs and little feet are my favorite parts of this doll! So much fun to knit! I'm reading The Summer Queen by Joan D. Vinge. It's the sequel to The Snow Queen. I've read them both several times before - good stuff.

Here's the finished guy from yesterday. His new family likes him, so he'll be joining them very soon. His little shorts are crocheted from some pima cotton that I dyed with black walnuts.


  1. Little feet and thumbs do sound like fun! You really are a doll making pro!

  2. You seem to be cranking out the toys these days!

  3. Dyed with black walnuts? That sounds like a fun thing to do. Cute shorts and cute dolls. :)
