Dolores is Beach-Ready!

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!
