A New Sweater for Didi

Hi there. I hope this post finds you happy and well. I am writing to you from snow covered northern Illinois. We had two storms in the last 1-2 weeks which each dumped 8-9 inches on us, so it is a bit deep out there. My little dogs have a circular area which we shoveled for them and the wall of snow surrounding it is quite high. It is funny to see them in their snow arena. Yes, winter is finally here!

In the last few days I wrapped up two projects: Didi’s cardigan and Rose’s ensemble.

Didi’s cardigan is complete and on its way to Linda Macario. Before I sent it out I took some photos of Bethany wearing it since she is the same size as Didi. I pinned the fabric swatches together to make a skirt so that you can see how the cardigan will look with the dress. Here’s a link to Didi wearing the dress–photos 8 and 10 show the dress.

I am so happy with how it turned out. I hope Didi likes her first sweater. 😉

I’ll save Rose’s new ensemble for my next post. Enjoy your day today! 🤗 to you, my friends.

Are you doing any doll sewing or knitting today?

      It’s a bit different, isn’t it? When embroidering on darker fabric I have to adjust floss color choice by going brighter than I’d think, and to also choose colors that don’t blend as closely otherwise they look like the same color. Thank you, Heather. ❤️

      Hi, Linda. Thank you! ❤️ This was a nice change to my usual palette of pastels.
      We’re getting ready for some rain, ice, and snow very soon. Luckily, we are snug inside. Have a great day.
