WOYWW - knitting marathon!

Good morning to all WOYWW buddies. I hope you are all well and getting all your jobs done ready for Christmas.
This week I have been knitting again.
I promised my great nieces some knitted dollies' clothes so delved into my massive wool bag for bits and bobs that would look good on the modern dolly!
This is the result....

 A hoodie and a little cardi for each of the three dollies.

My sewing room looks like this at the moment...

Still in need of more organisation but at least it has a useful space for a bit of communal sewing. Maxine came round this week and we had an entire hour together sewing whilst Ben had his afternoon nap. Bliss!

This is what I made for him to hang on my tree...

Well that's it for this week. I have a bit of Christmas baking to do today.
Have a great week.

Your room is looking good and quite different to when I invaded you in the summer! I'm glad you and Maxine had some good sewing time together :-) that little owl is fabulous!!
Do you have a certain pattern that you knit the dolly clothing from..I haven't found the right one on t'Interwebs yet and wondered if you could point me in the right direction!
Hugs, LLJ 12 xxx

You have had such a productive week! I am with you, as I am in the mood to do some more reorganization and tidying in my crafty corner. Your sewing room is always nice though. I can't get over how cute the dolly outfits are! Sandy Leigh #34

oh those cute little clothes are gorgeous, I haven't knitted for years and I'm not sure people appreciate hand knitted baby cardigans any more, or maybe they are in fashion again, who knows.

The owl is fab, thanks! We need to organise some more shelving and then there won't be a single bit of crafing tat without a home! x

A fun room with good lighting...always enjoyable. Love your little owl. And what fun with the little dollie clothes. I used to make Barbie clothes for my 3 nieces, don't know if I could do that tiny sewing anymore. Have a happy WOYWW day.

Oh my you're getting that room into a real sewing circle space, love it! Thedolly cardis are great, love the super hairy ones (I know, but I can't think of a word right now!), fancy having to think of modern dollies! Hope you enjoyed the cooking session.

I got to meet your daughter this week at WOYWW. I was surprised when I saw the selfie she took of you two. Love the owl you made for Ben to put on your tree. Those grandchildren sure get spoiled!

Happy belated WOYWW from #1.
