I finished the first of Elie's birthday presents. His birthday is Dec 5, so I'm doing well time-wise (unlike past years!) I made the cardigan designed by waldorfmama and the hat is a newborn hat I've made a bunch of times from "Natural Knits for Babies and Moms" by Louisa Harding. My doll must be a bit bigger than Shelley's (waldorfmama) because the cardigan is much less of a cardigan than hers, but it's still really cute and fits well enough and I'm sure it will be well-loved. The yarn is purewool - the color is too bright (IMO) to use as a baby gift so it was a perfect use. It's bright but not too bright for a doll... Now she needs a little skirt. Her only other outfit is a dress that doesn't fit under the cardigan.
Yesterday when I finished with the cardigan, I showed Yoav thinking that he would appreciate the knitting and would think it was cute, but he surprised me - when he saw it, tears came to his eyes :( He cried that his doll needs a cardigan too - it's getting cold and his doll will be cold without one. I told him he got different things (handmade tool belt with tools, a handmade knitting bag and a doll hat) for his birthday but he would hear none of it. So I guess I'll make one more. It's a quick fun knit - I just have to find three more buttons that will work. Eventually I'll also replace Elie's buttons because I only had two matching ones.
