I have knitted dollclothes during the holiday

Now I am finally back at my blog with a new contribution. We were in Sweden whole July and since we came back to Iceland is has been full house here. We will actually move back to Sweden in October. Johan just got a job in Sweden in the beginning of July and he will start 1st of November. So it is a lot going on at the moment. Me myseld is 5,5 months pregnant and then we have Olivia, who is 20 months old and a bit demanding.

But even since I have a lot going on I knit now and then and during my holiday I managed to make a dress for Olivia's doll. It is made in Icelandic unspun wool, which makes it quite thin. I also made a matching pair socks. They ended up more like stay-ups but I like the set anyway. I made the patterna and everything myself so I just need to write it down in a nice pattern and it is available for sale. Just contact me by email if you are interested. If Icelandic yarn is not available something similar can be use. It just important to check the tension (gauge). I used 3 mm needles. You should use 2,5 - 3 mm needles.

Here is a picture:

It is buttons in the neck but you could also have them in the front. It does not matter. Everything is roundknitted. Here is a picture with the sock on:

Och finally a picture of only the socks:
