Knitting WIP

Good Morning Lovely People.

I have now been knitting for around a year. Till recently I have knitted only basic squares but I find that gets a little tedious. I thought the time has now come to push my very basic skills.

A good while ago I purchased a magazine that had a rag doll pattern in it with outfits that you can also knit. Well of course the little lady who is coming up for 6 now wanted it. At the time I hadn't learnt to knit so i stored the pattern for later.

Last week I decided it was time, and after a little help in translating the very confusing pattern I set to knitting her. I obviously have not finished her yet but here she is so far...

She is not the most beautiful knitting you have ever seen, however that said I am very proud I have come this far with her.

as any other knitter/crocheter I have many other WIP's at present but this is the one I am the most proud of.

I am linking in with Tami today, pop by and check the other WIP'ers.

I am very sorry but I am still unable to follow any of your lovely blogs but I do keep adding my follows on bloglovin where possible. Just because I don't follow your blog publicly it doesn't mean I am not interested, I just have not figured out the issue with following people as yet.

Thanks for stopping by and reading about my Knitting adventures today.


  1. ...She is not the most beautiful knitting you have ever seen....? But she is so cute, well done to you!

  2. She is adorable. Well done! I think I must knit a rag doll too. :-)

  3. She is adorable, I bet the recipient will love her.

  4. What a sweet little knitted rag doll, your daughters a lucky little girl.

  5. You're doing good! I have basic knitting skills, and want to expand them to making dolls and animals... But never start with it. You did and your doll is looking very good (as a first project!). Would like to see her with her different outfits!

  6. I think what you have done is amazing, and I love that you are experimenting...I would love to do this some time!

  7. You did a great job!! She looks fantastic - you will find once you start knitting toys, you will be hooked :)

    Congrats on going outside of your comfort zone :D

  8. I think the doll is FANTASTIC! I would love to try a project like this.... uh, oh... another one to add to the list. :-D

  9. What a cute little doll! Nice work!

  10. Your little doll is so lovely! Knitting toys is so much fun!
    Have a great week! xxBarbina

  11. So cute Shelly, well done! x

  12. Hi Shelley, your little knitted doll is sweet -- I hope you have finished her up by now. I see I'm not the only one who isn't blogging much. Have had a lot going on but am hoping that things are getting back to a new normal. I need to send out some more snail mail, too so will work on that soon. Best wishes, Tammy
