Yep, I'm Playing with Dolls!

I couldn't help it anymore and had to buy myself my own Blythe Doll!! I searched on EBay and still wasn't willing to fork over the amount for a "real" Blythe but found factory ones. These seem to be made of extra parts and can have some defects. I lost on several auctions for a factory doll and was getting really frustrated! But finally I won this green haired cutie! My friend suggested Louisa for her name and I love it! Kira calls her Lou Lou! Kira made sure to introduce them to each other and is convinced they are going to be besties!!

Sock Explosion

I finished up the mismatched socks for Kira 2 weeks ago
They turned out pretty cute!!!!
I'm making more and I can't seem to stop!!!

I made an adult sized mismatched socks
These even had a ribbed pattern on the top

Now I've started on some rainbow socks!!!

This is my problem - I tend to fall in love with a craft and go overboard with it! 
Oh well!
There are going to be a lot of happy and well dressed feet when I am done!!!!

I do have to add for my knitting friends that knitting socks from the toe up and two at a time is the way to go!!!  I tried using double pointed needles and doing it the "traditional" way and it was confusing! I finished, but I had to look at videos and stop and restart - I was not a fan.  
I'm glad I saw this method because it makes sense! Plus finishing both socks at the same time, knowing they are the exact same length is perfect!!!  I highly recommend the Toe-up 2-at-a-time sock book!
