A sweater? Naturally....

Good morning everyone!  It is Wednesday, and we are Yarning Along with Ginny and joining in with Tami's Amis' Work in Progress  and Ambassador Crochet today!

So, after last week's fun of making dresses for the 'ladies', we had to move up in the wardrobe.  Seeing that the ladies arms were bare, and well, it IS winter, it was natural for my daughter to ask for some sweaters to keep them warm this winter.

And then, of course, it makes total sense that up next was a request for sweater for herself.  Naturally!

I asked my son if he would also like me to make him a sweater....

'No", he said, "I want a movie".

Naturally :)
As you can see from the top picture, I am using Fisherman's Wool for the fiber, and it has been delicious.  So good to work with.  The stitches are limited to a V-stitch and a half double stick, so nothing complicated, but quite soothing to work on.

And, on that note, I must bid 'ado'.  The shower is calling me - it is time to begin the morning!

  Head on over to Ginny's, Tami's, and Ambassador's Crochet other interesting ventures of fiber fun.


  1. Your daughter's right - it is winter and they do need sweaters. It would make a person cold just to look at their bare arms :)

  2. that is funny. my daughter and i are the same way. the dolls need warm clothing in winter.

  3. where did you get that yarn? is it 100% wool or a blend? I love the sweater on the daughter would like that, I should get her to try to make one herself as she is 10 and can crochet!

    1. Hi Marfa :)

      It is 100% wool, and I have been able to get it at our local AC Moore. Here is the web link to the details.

  4. Love the pattern on the sweater (and love that yarn, too)
    Are you using a pattern or are you designing your own? (really hope you say pattern, or I will have to put you on the same "I am too envious of your talent to stand it list" that Emily is on- just sayin!

    Have a great day - am looking forward to seeing the end result.


    1. Hi Karen! You are so sweet :) Thank you!!

      I wish I could say I was following a pattern, but I can't seem to figure out how to read pattern. So, I tend to just work by trial and error. Once I figured out the doll size sweater, I copied it for another, and am using it as a base line for the girl sized one.

      But, one of these days, I am going to learn how to read a pattern!!

      Have a great day!

  5. Which girl doesn't feel that way, dollies need warmth as much as we do or not?

    My girls teddies had to move overseas with us via hand luggage including a full wardrobe!


  6. Awesome....they do need to be warm, just like the rest of us. lol

  7. Lee Ann, don't let your dollies get talking to ours :) Also was wondering if there is a pattern for the sweater (some while ago I spotted a "pattern" whereby there was a picture and how you assemble it- and that was it- I'm mad I didn't remember where I put it because it made huge sense and allowed for free range stitching!!) Oh another "to do" for my list!!

  8. Can't wait to see the finished sweater for your daughter. :-)

  9. ha! My son doesn't want anything handmade either! Can't wait to see the finished sweater.
