I showed you my first progress photo in my last entry (Sweater Progress – Part 1). Here is Part 2 & the completed Blythe sweater!

I used size 2 needles, grey acrylic yarn and the Sleeves a Go Go Sweater pattern.

Here is all the completed pieces (1 front, 2 sleeves, 2 back halves). This is from this morning at around 2am.


All the pieces sewn together and flipped back the right way. The ends are from the back pieces (I haven’t sewn in metal snaps yet in the back):


And then here’s the completed (sans snaps) sweater on Sophie, my Blythe doll. Her hat is crocheted in worsted weight cream wool that has small light brown and light grey flecks in it.

I’ve been working on my first sweater*. I’m using the pattern called Sleeves a Go Go Sweater. So far it’s going well, I got the entire front of the sweater and most of one sleeve done yesterday. I just finished the second sleeve and decided to take a progress photo. The Staedtler pen is there to show the relative size of the sweater. It’s done on size 2 needles – the smallest needles I’ve worked with so far! I should get it done by tomorrow and then I’ll get it onto my Blythe doll, Sophie. She needs a wardrobe change soon.


Welcome… Again.

I did something with WordPress and then all the photos on the pages and entries just poofed, but they’re all back now! I reuploaded all of them and now they’re all working fine (as far as I know). There is a new layout up, which I’ve been working on and off for pages, along with new pages and sections. You may notice that the ‘Articles’ link doesn’t work yet, that’s because I’ll be linking the page there once I have more than just two articles done.

I’ve been working on a lot of projects lately. A lot of earrings, a necklace and earrings set, a few bracelets. There’s also been a crocheted hat and I’m currently knitting a sweater. All photos will be taken when I get a chance to gather everything up on a day with a lot of light, and I’ll post progress photos of my sweater tomorrow evening.

I hope everyone’s been having a good time with crafting and such. 🙂
