...Yarn Along

Today I'm joining Ginny for another lovely "yarn along."
I have just finished a cardigan and bonnet for the little Waldorf doll I made Matilda a couple of weeks ago.
The cardigan pattern is from Waldorf Mama and can be found here. It is quick and easy to knit up and perfect for 14 to 16 inch dolls.
The bonnet is my own recipe :) I'm happy how it turned out!
Now Poppy and her sister Bluebell have a matching set for those chilly winter days out with their little girlfriends :)
And what is the perfect "yarn" for two little dolly's? Why "Plum Tree Cottage" of course.
The girls love this story so much, I know every word of it by heart now!
Plum Tree Cottage is a sweet story about a little doll named Peggy who is trying to find herself her own little home. I recommend it highly for any little girls and dolls alike :)


  1. The cardigan and bonnet are adorable! Love the yarn color ~ just beautiful!

  2. Beautiful! The dolls and girls must be quite smitten with the lovley new warm woolies.


  3. It is lovely to meet a fellow unschooling family :). I finished reading your post below and completely identify with you!! It is a beautiful thing what unschooling does for a family :)!! Oh, and love the adorable cardigan and congrats on your pregnancy!

  4. That cardigan is beyond adorable! I truly love it! It makes *me* want a doll. :)

  5. Lovely! I need to learn to make dollies--my little girl is so attached to the bought one, I know she would appreciate another!

    Beautiful work!

  6. Oh the cardigan and bonnet are fabulous. I used the cardigan pattern for my little one's doll last year. I would love to make a matching bonnet. Any chance you'll share you pattern.

    Your dolls are beautiful. I can only imagine making one myself.

    The book sounds lovely. I will have to see if I can get it through our inter-library loan.

    Blessings, Elizabeth
