About Me

IMAGINATION IS THE EYE OF THE SOUL Joseph Joubert. I am a mother of four...I still remember the smile that refused to go away for weeks after our daughters birth. To have a little girl appear after three sons seemed such a miracle. I have always enjoyed My Doll World, sharing it with Lara when she was little. Today I design knitted outfits for miniature dolls and enjoy every minute of it. The fact that the outfits are removable is what makes it so special for me. Using ever finer threads has opened so many MINIATURE DESIGN opportunities.

Miniature Knitting in the Studio

I was asked to knit  a sweater and realized it would have to be on the back burner for a while....so much needs doing.

Then while knitting in all white as I usually do, the sweater kept popping into my head. So I thought I would just try out the collar to see what it would look like...I am so easily distracted....and then

VANESSA for a lady doll

Ja ja..... I ended up till late last night knitting...it was such a change to knit in colour,  love how it has turned out.
What perfect  colours for a Christmas sweater after all.
Did my soul good to do something different for a change.
I have charted the pattern so anyone can knit it no matter what language they speak.

Very little written instructions..... anyone out there who could translate English into Spanish/ French /Portuguese  for me?

The translating programs on the web while are great to read a blog and sort of know whats going on, certainly have the ability to make one laugh out loud, that is for sure!

I have it on good authority that patterns don't like to be laughed at! hahaha

As the sweater is now complete I thought I would add a picture.


  1. Hello Sharon, the sweater is amazin as all your knits.
    Maybe I could translate your instructions to Spanish.

    Hugs Maria

  3. I don't laugh, I say nothingh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. You did have me laughing Annelies, when I read your comment...When I was doing the chart Kaffe Fasset Style I was thinking to myself Annelies will be happy with this one, not much translating. Considering the reams I usually write in a pattern.
    Now the question is will everyone understand me.....I know what I mean in a pattern...

  5. It's perfect!!! I can't wait to see it finished.

  6. Sharon - I can't translate your patterns in ANY language - but I can tell you I love your work - stunning! Mini hugs....

    would be perfect in my mountain home...
    you sell / exchange your creations? let me know, thanks!

    kisses, Caterina
