And, I am happy to report I have another finished item to show all of you.
This is a little skirt for the American Girl doll. It is made with Red Heart Shimmer. The only issue I have is, blocking is not a possibility, with it being acrylic and having the 'shimmer' thread running through it.
It was a pretty quick and easy pattern to do. I love doing lacy type projects and this did not disappoint me at all.
I started on another project right away too.
Since my Grand Daughters Bday is the first of August, I decided to complete all my doll cloths for that purpose this year. This is a sweet little dress for her AG doll. I have had this yarn in my stash for a looooong time and she has been longing for me to make something for her with it. I mean, after all, there is BLING in it. It is Rozetti Polaris and comes in such lovely colors.
My lighting is horrible but this is a BRIGHT cherry red. It is totally cloudy outside and inside is not the best place for a red yarn to be photographed. Anyway, I am done with the skirt part of the dress and am now starting on the bodice. As you can see, it also has a lace pattern to the skirt. For some reason I had a horrible time with this lace. My counts would be off, I would for get to pass the slip stitch over, put too many YO in it. I did a lot of ripping back and with lace, that is not a fun thing. But this yarn was very forgiving and didn't cause me a lot of grieve doing it. I should have it done by weeks end and then will need to start on something else RIGHT AWAY.
I have no clue what will be next on the list to work on. Will probably start in on the Christmas gifts that I want to do so they will be ready in plenty of time. Lucky for me, all of them are small projects so I won't melt in our 115 degree heat that is coming this week.
I know you all are probably tired of seeing my list each week. But it keeps me focused on my goals and if I don't put it on my blog each week, I will not follow it as I should. I know this from years past and I DO learn from my mistakes (most of the time)
