The Old and the New

When the grandkids were here, we got out a lot of old toys that our kids used to enjoy. In the garage were a couple of bags of stuffed animals and dolls, one of which yielded this surprise. I made it for Jill years ago from a pattern in a magazine; the dolly has buttons and shoelaces along with clothes for practice dressing. Dolly cleaned up pretty well except for her rather wild-looking hair, and Sophia had great fun talking to her.

I just gave this scarf to a friend who loaned us some "modern" playthings. The yarn is by Crystal Palace and is so incredibly soft I bought several more balls to knit a few more. These colors were purchased at Quilt Passions in Kona, Hawaii, an unlikely spot to find yarn; it took 2 balls of Poof and 1 of Kiddo to make a rather long scarf. This was the only project I finished while the grands were here....it was a no-brainer made-up pattern that was just perfect for doing in the car.
