I got the bug.....

...the knitting bug.
I have always been a very reluctant knitter. I began with socks and loved them but I wasn't keen on expanding my repertoire. Then low and behold, my dolls began begging for sweaters. Don't they know me? I don't make sweaters. Socks only...and then only for big feet.
Well I acquiesced and started with a very simple pattern. I added sweaters to 4 dolls already and I just love how they feel with the extra layer of snuggly-ness. Here are the results of sweaters 5-9.
They will soon be seen on some of my ready to go Moonchild Dolls. I'll keep you posted.

They look beautiful Berrie! I started on doll sweaters a few months ago and they are so fun. I am almost confident enough to try to knit a few sweaters for my daughters.

Berrie,
Although I have never beena reluctant knitter, I have often refered to myself as a clumsy knitter. I just don't ever seem to look like I know what I am doing... my knitting tells a different story however, so I keep at it and love the process! I love the things you share with us...
Love, Aimee
