Welcome to the Knitted Babes Knit-Along!
This knit-along is for those interested in the knitted and stitched dolls featured in Claire Garland’s book, Knitted Babes, which is coming out simultaneously in the US and the UK in September 2005. The website in the US is at www.knittedbabes.com.
Why have a knit-along for an entire book? The book encourages all knitters—young and old, beginners to advanced—to have fun with their knitting. Although the book provides patterns and “personalities” for five dolls and their wardrobes, each doll will be unique creation because she is handmade. I, for one, would love to see our variations on the dolls—a DD Diva with green hair, a Bunny Bright in biker gear. Please share your creations from the book and send photos of your Babes on their travels and with your friends and family (especially if you are making a Babe for a son or daughter, grandchild, or loved one).
If you're interested in joining, please send me an email (LuckyinKY@earthlink.net). I'll send you an invitation to join this blog, and you can post as much—or as little—as you wish. I hope to see an introduction (who you are, what you'll be doing, and in what materials) and a finished-product post. This knit-along will last indefinitely, so join any time!
