My first raglan sweater!

This is my first raglan sweater ever! Boy those rows must be LONG on an adult sweater! I mean, this is for a doll at 40cm high... but isn't it cute? a bit long sleeves, but maybe she'll grow into it... *hehe*
The yarn is from the stash, an odd ball I found at the local second hand shop. The pattern is from "Strik og Sy til Dukken" and was really easy :)

The neverending socks that ended

Last night I finally finished the loooong socks! I must have been knitting on them on and off for more than a year!! Sooooo boring *yawn*
I'll take a picture later today :)

It's not because I don't want to post a picture... I just can't find my camera?! Last time I remember I saw it was on my holiday, and I was quite sure I put it in the car... but now it has disappeared... hope I find it!

Last edit of this post (I think) - my dad found my camera, that was hiding in his car... baaaad camera! So now I have my holiday pictures and I can show you the socks ;)

Doll clothes

This doll has lived a bit of a sad life the last many years... my mother made her for me many years ago, but somehow she didn't get many clothes? When I found her she only had a brown jumpsuit-thingy. And she is a baby, so she hasn't got hair (I wanted it that way - couldn't decide what haircolour she should have... easy way out ;)) But she didn't have a hat! Since I'm doing a bit of stashbusting at the moment, I found some lovely red yarn that I used for the lamas on the "lama hue" for my sister. There was exactly enough for this little hat and a scarf! But that's not enough for a cute babygirl like this? So I had to make her a sweater! Red and white stripes, made from the yarn I got from Marjut, and made mittens from! And since it didn't look good with the jumpsiut-thingy under it, I sew a little skirt for her today :)
I know she is a bit dirty on her face (and on the foot as well!) - Anders thinks she has been eating his chocolate! All I know is that she has to take a bath in the washingmachine later ;)
