I have a few dolls that sit on the shelves in my sewing room and I try to remember to change their clothes with the season. This year laziness caused me to bypass their spring wardrobe change altogether and yesterday I shocked them right from winter to summer. Every summer I notice that my girls don't have a patriotic sweater to wear and every summer I promise that "next year I'll knit something in red, white, and blue." Finally did! I used my own free pattern Snickerdoodle and used scraps of Rowan wool/cotton in royal blue and Rowan Pure Wool DK in white and red. If you like to knit doll clothes, I have quite a few free patterns you can access here on this blog or here on Ravelry.
To my American readers: Happy Independence Day and hope it's filled with sunshine and fun! My contribution to Monday's bar-be-que potluck will a strawberry shortcake made with buttermilk biscuits, sliced berries and whipped cream. Simple is best!
