My mother taught me to knit at about age 10.At 16 crochet dresses were the high fashion (remember the 60's anyone) so I taught my self to crochet and sold my designs in my mother's yarn shop.
Four children came along so I knitted, crocheted and sewed almost all their clothes and ones for their dolls too, even my son's Action Man got a rather fetching army sweater!
My children grew up, I started a career and didnt' take up crafting again until I retired a few years ago. After knitting a cardigan for my granddaughter I made her barbie the same design and discovered that I like to make small things such as doll clothes. I also love amigurami, making dozens of penquins, santas and snowmen last Christmas.
I hope you like my trendy designs for Barbie and her friends.
It all started last year when I knit my granddaughter a lovely fair isle cardigan. I made one for her Barbie with the left over yarn, then her build a bears needed a cardi too! I love to knit small things such as dolls clothes and as teddy bear clothes are so expensive really enjoyed knitting this little cardigan. If your new to fair isle knitting this is a great project to start and don't forget there are lots of tutorials online. Have a go and enjoy!
