new yarn, new projects.



I have decided to leave the Moss Stitch Jacket collar alone, so as promised, here is a picture:

As you can see, the collar pulls the bottom edge up substantially as I did not pick up the recommended 206 stitches. However, when the sweater is on, it looks good! I am going to buy a wide ribbon to tie the sweater at the waist. I didn't like it at first, but I like it more and more everyday.

It looks really fashionable when tied at the waist and paired with my favorite pair of black trousers and 4" pointy-toed stilettos. I'll have to model it sometime.

Anyways, I was in Princeton, NJ with my boyfreind this weekend (he lives there permanently, and I only on the weekends) and finally convinced him to take me into Pins And Needles, a fantastic yarn shop right in the middle of downtown Princeton. Of course, I did some damage. It wasn't hard however, since I am a poor university student. :)

I finally picked up some yarn for the Dot Pebbles dolls that I have been meaning to make for a family friend's two young daughters. I had a hard time finding fingering weight flesh colored yarn, but I found it...thank you Debbie Bliss. I am planning on making the dolls to look just like the two girls, Gabriella with brown hair, and Michaela with blonde hair. I do not know who is more excited to see the outcome - me or the girls. I knitted some baby sweaters for their baby brother Nicholas, and they asked me to knit them something. I showed them the dolls and they loved them. I can't wait to get started.
