I just have to say - I hate blog titles. I hate that I have to title my entry every time. Why can't I just write what's up for that day? Sometimes I feel more creative than other days and can think of something cute or relevant or whatnot to title a post. But most days, I really, really dislike them.
I finally did it last night though! I knit in the round! I think that's what you call it anyway. I made the skirt from the Sisters toy. When I got home and sat down with my knitting, I took a look at the few rounds I'd completed. The right side was on the inside and the wrongside was facing out. But I was able to turn the work on the needle to where it was supposed to be and luckily there were no twisted stitches so I was able to just keep on going! :) It's the first time I've ever used decreased, but I did it! And I think it looks pretty good. I did the pink dress first. It reminds me of raspberry sherbet. Yum! It did turn out smaller than I thought it would. But I didn't really look at the measurements of the finished project in the book. Mostly I was just looking at the pictures. And with a child holding the toy, I spose that may make something seem larger than it really is. I cast on the blue dress last night, but haven't done much. I was going to make one sister and then the other, and then join the two, but I've decided to work on them both at the same time. I am deaming the sisters Team Pink and Team Blue. That way I can keep track of what I need done for each sister. I'm hoping to finish Team Blue's dress tonight. Hopefully this toy continues to be such a quick knit!
p.s. I got Grumpy Bear's face embroidered on so now he's officially completely finished. He's pretty cute. I think Mom will like him. I was going to make hiim a sweater, but I think I'll stick with just the scarf.
