About Me

My photo
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

Spent the afternoon going through photo files,
I wish I had not sorted them into new folders as now I can't find anything.

I eventually found what I was looking for, a photograph of an outfit I had made for a lady doll about 6 years ago.

As you can see the socks don't match, I was playing around with different lace patterns to see which would be the best for the ensemble.....

The pattern was written out in a diagram format  using EXCEL.

The tights take 4 days to knit....looking at the ensemble I feel it has not dated, maybe in colour choice, it seems all the young woman are walking around in tights these days.



  1. Oh WOW! It is so great to see it on the figure.
    I love this sweater... As I think you already know. ;-)

  2. That is why I spent all afternoon looking for it!
    It was especially for you....
    Have a Happy weekend

  3. Sharon that's fabulous! I love how it looks on her! =)

  4. You are just too much ... is there anything you can't do. Wonderful outfit, wonderful colour combo, lovely doll as well.
