Suggested pattern: Three tiered Doll skirt By Deborah Minner.. we did the top half and then Making up the bottom or you can use: Lacy Flouncy Skirt for American Girl Doll by Kristen Renneker  which the next skirt we do will be this. but all that color in the yarn we will lose the Lacey goodness.

I have a Post on my Blog for Artsy home decor with Knit magic! She makes her own yarn in order to design these. you can see at the end of video too.

Thrifty Spotlight::

If you are thinking about Socks:

DIY Sock Blocker Tutorial by Maryann
there is a template sketch on the ravelry project page you can download
I added small holes for better dying

For bigger feet like my size 11 I recommend taking the template and adding to it
getting several placemats from the dollar store
Also found a video that asked ‪Blocking Socks: Are Sock Blockers Necessary?‬ Stefaniegrrr
: fun vintage sock blocker

by Stefanie Goodwin-Ritter

Our Artwork:
* 1. Customized Converse sneaker for the Retro Re-visited Exhibition at the Arta Gallery in Toronto. I did the shoes based on pieces from the Fashion week collections of Alexander McQueen. I will do a separate blog post on these shoes because there are serious collector all over the world.
2. Ava’s artwork: the framed piece .. very abstract .. this might inspire you to consider sparkly Yarn if not in a sweater the think about sexy shiny Sock or summer shawlette.
