Yarn Along Wednesday - Doll Knits and Fingerless Mittens

Yarn Along Wednesday - Doll Knits and Fingerless Mittens - from Blue Bells and Cockle ShellsI spent all of my knitting time in December working on this rainbow hat and pair of mittens for Sola’s doll. I used the same pattern for the hat that I used to make Sola’a hat, but made it in size 0-6 months. I wish I had gone up a size, as her doll has “big hair”. I used a pattern for the mittens, but ended up changing it so much that it was hardly the same design, so I’m not going to post a link to it as it to be a bit confusing.Yarn Along Wednesday - Doll Knits and Fingerless Mittens - from Blue Bells and Cockle Shells

Sola really likes the fact that she and her doll now have a matching hat and pair of mittens. She also got some more clothing for her doll for Christmas, so she’d been spending a lot of time playing with her doll. It is nice to be able rekindle the love for an older toy by just putting in a little bit of effort, rather than buying a new toy.Yarn Along Wednesday - Doll Knits and Fingerless Mittens - from Blue Bells and Cockle Shells

During the process of knitting the hat and mittens, I accidentally knocked my fingerless mittens off their needles and had to restart. So I am now just finishing up the cuff on my first mitten. 

As always, I’m sharing this post with Ginny over:

  1. I hope you're catching these comments because, as I mentioned before, the Intense Debate doesn't seen to want to show up on the iPhone. That's so cool that the doll and Sola have matching hats and mittens! I've knitted a hat and socks for a baby once but I've not even knitted mitts for myself before, let alone a tiny doll. :)

  2. Oh man. I hate it when a project slips off its needles. So frustrating. The doll knits turned out nice.
