The test pattern for a private individual is complete and it quite cute. It fits well which is what I like.


I'm working on another one and am almost finished the second sleeve. This one has cables.

Another outfit done and this one is cute.


I'm going to be one happy camper when the yarn I have been using for testing is gone. I'm not a huge fan of it but the price was good. Once gone, I will buy some nicer yarn to knit with.

They are lovely, it’s not easy knitting with yarn you don’t like, you deserve better

@Celia, thank you for your kind words. I will use up the yarn as much as I dislike it. If the designer keeps pumping out the patterns using that size wool, it will be gone before I know it. If not, the full balls will go to goodwill next spring.

I got another sweater set knit and used the same Downton Abbey yarn as before but the blue.



I went down a needle size and it fits the doll perfectly.  Now back knitting hats.
