So for those of you that don’t knit or appreciate craft projects, I am sorry. This is how nesting and fall manifests itself in me. I kind of go into a knitting/craft project frenzy.
In continuing my quest to use up scrap yarn (I always seem to have just one or two balls of yarn leftover after a project), I decided to knit Olive and Archie some sweaters. You guys remember Olive and Archie, right?
Ever since I decided to make these dolls I have planned to make them extra clothes and all the other accessories that go along with the WeeWonderfuls creations. This time I didn’t buy/follow any of the patterns she has and decided to just knit some up on my own. Olive’s sweater came out a tad smaller than I would have liked, but overall I am happy with them and so is Bean.
And yes, I may just be a bit obsessed with that colorwork pattern from the Elsie Mitts. Good thing I ran out of the yarn or it may have been necessary to stage an intervention.
Pattern: My own.
Yarn: For Olive’s sweater dress I used less than one skeins Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Lake Ice Heather, Knit Picks Telemark in Cilantro Heather and Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK in a light pink color that I don’t have the actual name for because I don’t have the yarn label anymore. For Archie’s sweater I used less than one skein Knit Picks Telemark in Cilantro Heather.
