My Creative Space


A few weeks ago Miss 9 expressed ALOT of interest in knitting! I only had some mohair/angora wool from the op shop, which I couldn't pass by because of the colour.  So this was her first attempt. Not bad, especially considering its probably not the easiest type of wool for a beginner to start with!

So when she kept at it, we went and got her a proper set of needles (instead of the op shopped miss matched pair I have, for stuffing the dolls). And she started again, with some normal wool.

She made this beautiful scarf for her doll, who sits on her bed every day (with that knowing look).

And also helped me with this scarf, for one of the boy dolls.

He is part of a little group, ready to fly off to Dolly Donations. Along with the girls from my doll swap, earlier this year!

If you have time today, do pop over to Kirsty's and have a nosey at some other Creative Spaces!x

Quite impressive really. I wouldn't be photographing my 2nd crochet attempt last night! Am loving the doll too, has been shown off to quite a few people and she loves it! We've never had a reaction like it to any other toy, so cute, it must be the face, I do think she thinks it's another person. Thanks again :)

That's so sweet that your daughter is able to add to your creations! The scarf looks delightful on her doll.

She has done so well! I am very impressed, seeing as I am also teaching myself to knit, after trying and giving up at about 9!

Wow! She has done fabulous things! My Big Girl knits too and I'm constantly amazed at what she achieves - it's a lovely feeling, isn't it? Congrats on your wonderful Miss 9 :) Kx

I have a seven year old that likes to try everything I do as well. She has been trying to learn crochet and spends hours making chains.
Your girl is doing a great job.
