Before the Olympics I sneaked in couple of small projects, one was the baby sweater, the other was this doll sized shawl.
Project: Samantha's Cape
Pattern: Doll cape pattern from Cast on Magazine Holiday 1997, heavily altered
Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool from stash
Yardage: less than 100 yards
Needles: Size 8
Cast on: July 24 2012
Cast off: July 26 2012
Cost: practically nothing
Finished size: American Girl doll size
Notes: I've knitted a few things for my two American Girl dolls, and they always take longer than I expected!
We took a trip to Carmel to visit my mom when Henry was off for the summer and didn't have camp, and picked up her latest batch of charity knitting. She's moving to Houston to stay with my brother in January, so this will be one of the last batches from her. If you know someone running charity knitting in Houston area I'm sure we can use a contact, ideally it needs to be someone speaks either Russian or Chinese (Mandarin).
Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, Tami's blog, and leave me a comment!
