I am aware that these Barbie knitting posts are silly. Most people tell me I'm crazy for knitting such tiny things for relaxation. But it works for me. Using up small bits of stash yarn, starting a project and finishing it in a day or two, working out the technique to knit in the round instead of flat, all of it is helping to scratch an itch I have right now. I've been working so hard to finish old quilting projects that I have startitis in the worst way. But if I start a bunch of new quilts right now...I'll have another pile of UFO's to finish next year. So I just pore over the many Barbie knitting options on this site and stitch away. I'll get back to quilting soon.
But first, there is a Barbie fashion show.
First up is a relaxed dolman sleeve sweater and trousers. I picture this as Barbie's lazy weekend outfit.
Since my young friend is in Minnesota, Barbie needs a winter hat and scarf.
Here is a pastel outfit for a spring day at the botanical gardens.
And lastly is a bold power suit with a shaped peplum that is longer in the back and shorter in the front.
Henry has recently taken an interest in Barbie since he was introduced to her through Toy Story. He talks about Barbie's shirt, shoes and wrists. He talks about her wrists a lot. I never realized how few of his toys have moving wrists. Barbie has been walking on the furniture and taking naps with the Handy Manny tools. I think it is great that he keeps her busy while I'm working on her wardrobe.
