Barbie knits

I checked out a book from the library and have been busy knitting Barbie accessories. I did all these since 9pm last night, while watching tv. It's fun getting things done quickly! Do you think these kind of things would sell on ebay?

Went to yarn shop...

I went to my local fine yarn shop and bought some #000 double pointed knitting needles. I usually only buy circulars but the cost was prohibitive for buying 2.
I petted all the lovely yarn while I was there and looked at the books.

The owner came in and I asked her if she was hiring. She doesn't need any sales people right now but said she may use me as a model knitter!!! Not only will she provide all the needed materials but will pay me some for the knitting. :-)
I hope she can use me.

I finished knitting a lace bookmark with crochet cotton and size 0 needles..... I blocked it but think I will spray starch it and iron it... It is very pretty.
I also finished Isabelle's sweater and gave it to her for Christmas... She is 7 months old and the sweater was a size 12 month. It just fits.....

Here is mommy, big sister, Ella, and Isabelle (wearing new sweater). Mommy has her hands full with these two darlings!

Sweater set

I knit this sweater for my friend to give to her grandbaby. She is a knitter but ran out of time. Not knowing what kind of money to charge I asked her to buy me an equal amount of yarn. It turned out so nice and it was easy as it was knit top down and the only seams were under the arms. I had yarn left so I knit the cute little hat with i cord top knot.
I am knitting the same sweater for my little Isabelle in a white boucle type yarn. It is turning out so nice. I have about 4 inches on the sleeve left and it will be ready for CHRISTmas.

I am having CHRISTmas here on Sat. the 23rd. Almost all of my family will be here! Turkey, ham and all the extras. YUMMM

Felted Slippers

I just started felting a pair of knit slippers for myself.
One is felted the other isn't.. dramatic size difference!
They are a ladies size large (8-1/2 to 9). The unfelted one was too big for my size 13 foot husband!
I am going to buy some puff paint for the soles to make them non-slip.
