Kirsten's Sweater Done

Last time the sweater didn't look too cool on Ken. Now it's finally done, modeled here by Samantha. The yarn is some self patterning sock yarn, probably Regia; my own pattern. The body is worked in the round to arm holes, then devided for the arm hole and neck decreases. Sleeves are picked up from the arm holes and knitted down while decreasing. The jeans are made by a local quilter, bought at the De Anza Flea Market. Samantha was a Valentine's Day gift from my husband a few years ago, and I finally got around to knit the first doll sweater.

Vivian! That's adorable! It fits her really well. How long did it take you? Shoot! You could sell those things! (Jade SOOOOO wants her own American Girl that looks like her for Christmas.) You could go into business knitting matching girl and doll sweaters - they are really expensive through American Girl.

The American Girl clothing market is huge. The sweater is fantastic. Samantha is lucky doll.
