Red Mohair Scarf

I got this pattern at the Yarn Shoppe in Elk Grove. I thought I bought the yarn there to make it but when I looked at the ball band, the yarn was from a different store. Still can’t figure that out. I made the ruffles a little longer than the pattern called for because I wanted a “new romantic” look (remember Simon Le Bon and the Taylor boys?). Knit in Crystal Palace Kid Merino Red Cinnamon with size 8 and 10 needles.

Kim Possible doll sweater

This is the second sweater I completed, but the first one I started. I wanted to try out an idea I had with something that would knit up fast. Also I wanted to use yarn left over from a sock project I had just completed for my niece. Since I had given her a Kim Possible doll for her birthday, I thought a sweater in the same yarn would be a fun gift (shown on a Bratz doll). It’s knit in Knitpicks Dancing (discontinued) with size 0 needles.
