I once again spent the weekend making something for my sheep doll rather than doing any serious knitting for myself, or indeed anything much else at all. Although I do in fact have the kit for her next official pattern, I decided to try my hand at designing something for her myself – a pareo!
I had some sparkly yarn I had gotten at a yarn exchange some time ago, and my Mom kindly donated some she had leftover as well. Because of course Dolores needs to sparkle! I did some basic measurements, and then just kind of made it up as I went. Here is the result…
The sparkle doesn’t show up quite as well as I’d like – it was around 9 pm when I finished, so I’ll try to get some better pictures in the sunlight tomorrow 🙂 For anyone interested, I am planning to write up the pattern. You know, in case you need to knit a pareo for a sheep doll. And who among us hasn’t?
But in any case, Dolores is ready for the pool, for the beach, or for any summertime glamour opportunities that come her way!
