Tatting Lace and Knitting

Well it is still Sunday so I worked on my calligraphy with scriptures, and working on Robin's Classic Heart Pattern seems to go right along with the scripture too!
 
Below is inside out!
The sock got finished yesterday and I sewed it together. So my thread turned out to be thicker and I reduced the rows on the foot part to make it smaller but this leaves the sock too tall.  Years and years ago I was into making porcelain dolls.  and I never put the last one together so I tried it on this dolls leg is supposed to be official baby size 3 months.

Well I just rolled down the top and started the next one
I know this expert lady that lives here in town and she told me to just make one at a time till I felt comfortable and now I see why. I also took notes so even though they are not perfect they will still be close to the same in looks 
Hope your Sunday was a wonderful day and this rest of the week finds you healthy and strong too!

  3. Yes, there are advantages to doing one sock at a time, especially when you're learning or experimenting. Glad you have a doll of just the right size!

  4. Calligraphy is something that has always fascinated me. I keep thinking I'll try it some day, but some day never seems to come. I love the blue for the baby socks!
