Needle Notes

Cobblestone by Jared Flood. Pullover with garter stitch details.

·        Sleeves too big and baggy. Went back to my roots with Knitting without Tears and used the reliable EPS or Elizabeth Percentage System.

·        Knit sleeves on one size larger needle.

·        Will add some length to the body too. 18”

·        Barrett Wool Co Wisconsin Woolen Spun. Molly was here this week and I asked her to touch it.

Molly, Millie, and Morgan by Susan B Anderson with Quince & Co

PrairiePiper’s Millie

Millie and Morgan and a tiny log cabin pillow I made c. 1985.

Helene is holding Millie. Maeve might have given Morgan the shove but picked her up before we left. Look at those legs and black shoes. Adorable!


Ben and Buddy Kit


  • ·        Quince & Co Chickadee. Available as kit on Quince site.

  • ·        Long hair, folk clothing, perfect size. An adult would love receiving one of these for sure.

  • ·        I had all the colors so I knit mine exactly as instructed. She may need some suspenders on her skirt or a drawstring. Size 2 needles. Dyakraft applewood.

  • ·        To see my granddaughters hugging their dolls brought me so much joy!

  • ·        Allow time because there are a lot of steps to the doll but it is very intuitive. I would say advanced or adventuresome beginner or intermediate. I’m ready to knit another one. The shoe/foot is probably the hardest part for me but really once I got it in my head that I was basically knitting a sock, the second one flew. I love watching the doll come to life with the hair and eyes.

  • I’m ready to knit another one without a deadline. And more clothes for Millie and Morgan.

Tomten Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann. 3514 projects on Ravelry.

Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Hoodie with zipper. All garter stitch. I have a little color detail on this one. Fit perfectly over Helene’s Odette Hoodie.

Boxy shape so comfortable layering over sweater. Hoodies have been in style since I was a kid and maybe longer. Probably longer.
