Sorrel on Standby…again

Poor neglected Sorrel has been put on the back burner yet again…..not that I mind though! I can knit a ridged sleeve or two any time.

My yarn has arrived for the International Scarf Exchange. It is Merino 8ply DK 100% Merino Wool in colourway Earth from The Knittery.
It’s beautiful yarn, lovely & soft, and I think it will be wonderful to knit with. The pattern I have chosen is an old knitty pattern, Argosy, and I can’t wait to wind this into a ball and get started.

I cast on yesterday for the first doll for the Uthando project (see my last post).
I’ve started sewing the seams & today I hope to put the stuffing in & start giving it a personality. I’m thinking of picking up some stitches around the waist & giving her a skirt, that’s why I knit her some panties.
