“Santa’s Helper”

It’s been many years since I’ve made anything new for my Kish Riley, but she finally has something new to show you.  This ensemble came about by accident.  If you remember, I made the Santa hat (that is now Riley’s) thinking it was for one of the tiny dolls, but I was mistakenly following the pattern for Gina (the pages were next to each other in my book).  Because I was using a thinner yarn on smaller needles it came out too small for Gina with way too many stitches for the tinies.  Well, it fit Riley perfectly and was the beginning of this ensemble for her.  This is her first sweater dress; it took two tries to get the perfect fit, but it was worth the effort, I think.

Here is the photo of my four dolls in their coordinating outfits that I showed you a couple of weeks ago.  Like I had said in a previous post, I didn’t plan on making four sets that looked so sweet all together.  It was a pleasant surprise!

P.S.  Riley made me promise to mention to you all that she would LOVE to know how cute you think she is all dressed up for Christmas.  Bye for now!

Happy Thanksgiving

A happy Thanksgiving to one and all.  Wishing you all a peaceful holiday filled with love, family, friends, and of course, lots of good food.

Looking through my photo archives I found this picture from 2005.  Riley (by Helen Kish) is very thankful for a long list of things.  Let’s let her remind us of all we are thankful for too.
