waldorf doll clothes

my friend’s doll now has clothes – sweater, pants and socks. these were fun to make.

~ i just kinda made up the patterns as I went, trying them on and adjusting them.

i have always dressed according to certain basic guy fashion rules, including:

both of your socks should always be the same color, or they should at least both be fairly dark. ~ dave barry

“please” ~ “no”

some knitters say that they buy yarn with no project in mind and wait patiently for the yarn to “speak” to them. this reminds me of michelangelo, who believed that every block of stone he carved had the statue waiting inside and that all he did was reveal it. i think i’ve had yarn speak to me during the knitting process, and i’ve definitely spoken to it. perhaps i’m doing it wrong, or maybe my yarn and i aren’t on such good terms, but it really seems to me that all i say is “please” and all it ever says is “no”.
