I have just added a photography page! I am going to sell some of my photography through Etsy. I don’t have everything finished just yet, but I’m getting there! Here’s the page link: DoodleknitsandCrafts.com/Photography
I am excited to tell everyone that I have finally set up an Etsy page! I only have baby hats on Etsy at the moment, but I would be glad to take custom orders. I am planning on expanding to more items, so keep an eye on my Etsy page.
My youngest sister has been asking me to make her a pair of fingerless gloves for the past few months, so I finally did. I hadn’t used double pointed needles to knit in round before, so this was a great opportunity for me to try it out. I actually enjoyed using the double pointed needles to make the gloves, more than knitting it straight, folding it over and sewing it together. I used just the basic two stitch rib at the beginning and end of each glove, with a technique for a button hole for the thumb.
I made a pair of fingerless gloves for one of my sisters’ birthday. They have a basic rib and pico edge, I got the pattern from www.anniecholewa.com. It has a very simple look. I love how easy it is to knit together, I want to try it with several different ribs and stitch patterns. Here are some pictures.
I also made another baby blanket for someone, who also bought some scarves. I used a different type of yarn this time, Here are the pictures of the blanket.
Okay, here’s what I’ve been working on! I have plucked enough fiber from Ringo (my angora rabbit) to spin. I’m using a drop spindle. It’s basically a stick with a weight on it, and there are many versions of it. It’s simple to use once you get the hang of it: spin, drop, and wind. I won’t be blending or mixing the fiber. I want to see how 100% angora yarn will work for the products I have in mind and I really enjoy the color of Ringo’s fiber. I am also trying some new patterns. I am currently working on some fingerless mitts.

I just finished knitting a baby blanket, which I gave to a friend. But I got some pictures of the blanket before it was sent it off. I’m working on two different blankets, winter and summer. The winter one is heavy like a comforter and the summer one light, but still warm. I hope to eventually add Angora Rabbit wool to a blanket, but I’m still working on spinning it. Hopefully, by the fall I will have new products made with some Angora. I’ll post more about the more about it soon.
I got an order a little while ago, for a custom knitted sleeveless cardigan. The customer sent some nice pictures saying she is enjoying it and that she received many compliments on it. I really appreciated that and it gave me inspiration for the next thing I will make. Here are the pictures.
