Late breaking news

Speaking of using leftover sock yarn, Berocco has a new set of Minutia. Go grab yourself a pdf! These started out a couple of years ago as miniature sweater ornaments. The 2009 set has other garments and they are so cute. I want to make a doll that could wear the clothes. I'd have to make a few adjustments for fit. The doll would have to have a long skinny I-cord neck to wear some of those turtlenecks.

Those are adorable! I'm not a very "crafty" person, but my mom & daughter are. I guess I got the Geek gene and craftiness skipped a generation.

Happy ICLW to you both, and thanks for commenting.

Those are so adorable! I've grabbed the Minutia pdfs too, thanks for that link :-)

I also really like your alphabetised posts idea - I might have to pinch that and give it a try myself for a future NaBloPoMo.

I love those sweaters! Thank you so much for doing ICLW or I would have never seen them. I've had a mini mitten ornament obsession before and I think it is time to move on to sweaters. :)

If you visit the Berroco site, be sure to check out their patterns from previous years. I think they are still available and are still free.

Those are super cute! I have zero crafty ability whatsoever, so I REALLY admire people like yourself who CAN be crafty! Way to go!

Happy ICLW!
