Next test pattern has been completed. I quite like the pattern and it's cute on Jennie.


I'll be knitting this one again to use up some of the stash.

I finally finished this sweater for the dolls. It was put aside so many times while testing patterns for designers.


The pattern is for advanced knitters and I'm glad I knit it and stretched my knitting skills. There were levels of frustration felt as the pattern has mistakes in it and took a bit of time to figure out what needed to be done. At one point I didn't think it would fit any of the dolls but it did. I doubt if I will knit this pattern again unless I do it as a test pattern to help fix the mistakes.

I also knit this dress and it turned out so sweet. The yarn has been in my stash for ages and I still have lots of it left. Time to use it up testing patterns.


The back closes with buttons which is nice.

This is the third dress by the designer Little Woolens. I didn't finish it in time to be included in the testing but it is a great pattern.

Lea enjoyed modeling it by the Christmas tree.
