Back in early summer, I was chatting with a friend on Facebook. He had found a doll at a dumpster, brought it home and cleaned it up for his granddaughter and had shown a picture of it on Facebook. This guy and his wife are the most wonderful people and I’ve known them for so many years. Blake is really into antiques, preserving old things and bringing them back to their glory days and I can imagine that he felt really bad for that doll!
They have a granddaughter a couple of years younger than Addie and Blake was telling me how she loves to dress her dolls. I told him I would make the little girl and her doll matching sweaters.
Last night after finishing the white cotton sweater, and still looking for a reason to avoid “decorating” the unicorn sweater, I got out the pink (of course!) yarn I had bought to make the sweaters.
I knew I was going to make Tallulah for the little girl. I had already made one for Addie and it’s such a cute little sweater and perfect for southwest Louisiana weather.
I began looking for a somewhat matching pattern for the doll sweater and then it occurred to me — Tallulah comes in newborn sizes . . all the way up to size “10 years”. I can use the exact same pattern for the girl and doll sweaters!
The doll sweater has been started. Hopefully I can make some good progress on this today.
