Tamdoll's Chloë

Chloë from Spud and Chloe at the Farm (Knit & Read Book).  She was fun to make.  Why 2 pictures?  I couldn’t decide which background I liked better. 

I have to make an effort to watch my stitching – you can tell at the bodice that my tension changed when I moved from knitting-in-the-round to back & forth.  Usually I’d say “I did it that way on purpose” and I think I can get away with it in this case as a dress “design element”.  But… I just want to get things right this year and this is something I’m going to work on!

Right now I have a new handbag in the washing machine being felted, and half-way through I can already tell it’s going to be a good one.  But I forgot to take a “before” photo!  Also been experimenting with some domino knitting – and I really, really like it!  Much better than entrelac.  Photos of those projects in a few days.

What are you working on?

  1. She's so cute :)
    I think a "design element" sounds like good reasoning...we all have those :)
    She really stands out against that blue background!

  3. I tried very hard to look for the uneven tension but they all look uneven to me. Haha kidding. Very nice. (even if the tension bugs you)

  4. Well! I just plain love your doll! I would never have noticed the tension issues because I was completely smitten with her sweet face and amazed at the fact that you made her in the first place.

    I am so glad you are simply playing and trying new things! Good way to use this time.
