Another “pictureless” post. I got into the habit from my daily blog to always have a picture for every post. That isn’t always the case since this is a different blog. I’m not sure you really want to see my doll photos as it is. They have been super disappointing lately.

Anyway… I’ve been busy preparing for nekocon. So much work yet so little done. I have a feeling that I’m going to be tearing my hair out as the con creeps up.

I am happy to say, though, that I think I finally got the dollshe pattern down. At the last meet Tina brought along Lassa, her Hound, and I just had him try on one of my finished sweaters. The reason for this was that the measurements I took originally didn’t add up.  When I went through the numbers I saw that the measurements from Lassa were almost exact to Tak’s, my elfdoll wu, who is the smallest in my sd sized group. It didn’t make sense. So Lassa tried it on and besides the length on the body, sleeves and raglan decrease, the sweater fits like a glove. So as soon as I finish my current commissions I’m going to whip up a sample and see if I can find willing Dollshe to try it.

My “wish knits” list (say that three times fast)  keeps growing. I’m not sure when I’ll get around to knitting them but the list includes:

-a deep v neck version of my takumi sweater. This has been on my wish list for a while and I think I have an idea on how to do it. Again it may be a while before I get around to it  but it would be nice to add the option to my commission page as well as the con coming up.

-knitted ruffles. I was actually swatching this last night. I planned on making ruffled human sized wrist warmers for the Merry Mart this december. Ruffles are so romantic and lace once make it even more so. I like the idea of adding them to knitted pieces in general but I also like the idea of adding them to woven fabrics as well. I’ve seen vintage clothing with crocheted button loops and laced edging that is actually crocheted to the piece itself. I think the same can be done with ruffles. Again, when I have time.

I know there is more to the list but these thing are on the top two. I’m going to see if I can squeeze them in when I can. The mr is out today so I have the house to myself. I should be able to get plenty done.

Another list that has been growing has been the doll wish list. And this is after I whittled it down to just one. It looks like a Soom Dia boy can be added. Ugh… I’m not even sure he would fit in with the other boys but I really don’t care. He’s lovely and I want him. I’m not sure when I’m going to attempt it but maybe sometime in the future. Maybe if I wait long enough the want will disolve but I doubt it. Again, he’s so lovely…
