Knitting For Dummies...

Okay, dummies is NOT the PC term. They are called mini mannequins, & I made their outfits. I knit up little hats, scarves, & even a muff. I also made the felt skirts & ultra hip mod abstract cape type tops. I flopped on the second skirt, the purple & white one, hate it. But the blue with the flowers... I want one in my size! Love it. WHY did I decide to clothe these little people? They are for a window display at work. The neighborhood is having a block contest between the stores for the best holiday window.
Mae, my super cool coworker (who used to be an architect & yes, I will be raiding her brain once drafting classes start) & myself were at the shop til 1:30 AM last night working on the window. It looks good. Really good. There are ice skating sheep & everything. I will take a photo once the window is complete.
**This photo is best viewed bigger.**


  1. Very cute. I can't wait to see the ice-skating sheep!

  2. I can see why you would want that outfit for yourself. It is great! What a fun project. :)

  3. That is too cute. I haven't been by the store if a week or so. I can't wait to see your handy work and the entire window display.

  4. oh, she is a doll. can't wait to see the completed window!
