Naturespun Dolls

September 27 2010 – Roseanne

(Just a little intro from Lisa!... ) Roseanne is dropping in to let us know what she has been knitting lately! WIP I've wanted to knit Paper Dolls by Kate Davies for forever! A couple of weeks ago I bit the bullet, bought the pattern on Ravelry, and rescued some beautiful purple Naturespun Fingering from my stash (an awesome yarn which is so cheap but such good quality, and which you can buy here). I had enough of the purple, and found a random ball of green which matched it well. I still have to choose the colour for the dolls themselves, but there's plenty of choice left on the shelf in the shop, and there's a lot of knitting to be done before I get to make that decision! i-cord cast on This was my first time doing the i-cord cast on and, while it looks well, by golly it took ages. corrugated rib This was also my first time doing corrugated rib. It took a while to settle into a rhythm with throwing yarns about so wildly with each stitch. I ended up throwing both yarns with my right hand - the purple knit held by my middle finger and the green purl with my index. It worked pretty well, but I was also pretty glad when it was over and I could zoom on with the stockinette!
