Isn’t She Sweet? – Carole in Pink and Grey

16 Feb

Bonjour, mes amies!

Here’s a lovely outfit for Carole. I have used this super pattern by Nelle, although I have added crocheted sleeves, instead of socks, and a wee pair of shoes. Nelle’s pattern can be found here.



The dress is made with James C Brett Supreme Baby 4 ply in shade SY6 (Pale Pink), Patons Diploma Gold 4 ply in shade 4245 (Steel) and Woolcraft Baby Care 4 ply in shade 700 (White). And the the crochet hook used was 3 mm.



Carole looks like she will be cosy in this outfit.


I hope you agree this is a very sweet dress.


And here is Carole with Jeannie in her pink and grey outfit.



Passez une bonne journée, à bientôt …

Happy New Year! – Carole’s Multicoloured Sparkly Dress

3 Jan

Bonjour, mes amies!

Here is Carole after she arrived for the Hogmanay Party. Her dress is from the Sticka Till Barbie site and is pattern number 183.



The yarn is the same ball as I used for Annie’s little twin set. It is Rico Design Creative Reflection shade 004 (Pastel).



I have adjusted the original pattern by using size 3.25 mm knitting needles and have added a top of my own to give some shoulder straps.


Once again the shoes are by Cathel at lagrandemaisonsurleplateau.


This is a cute dress for Carole …


… and here she is with the others (still one dress to come!)


Bonsoir, à bientôt …

Fabulous Fairisle (4) – Carole’s First Dress

27 Dec

Bonjour, mes amies!

Festive Felicitations! I hope you are all enjoying the Xmas holiday and that Santa was good to you.

I am continuing my tradition of trying to knit every one of my Les Cheries the cute little dress (Abigail’s Tunic) by Sylvie of Poupeesdesyl. Each time I am using the speckled yarn Crofter DK by Sirdar. And here is Carole in her first new dress.




This time I have used the baby version, which is Sirdar Snuggly Crofter Baby DK in shade 161 (Maisie). This is a very bright and cheerful coloured yarn and has produced a lovely effect for the dress.


I have lengthened the pattern to make it a dress and have made the neckline two rows less. (I am trying to make each version slightly different.)



Carole looks lovely in this dress and she is wearing her own shoes.


Here is a picture of her with my Xmas tree.


And a couple with Jeannie to whom she bears a remarkable resemblance 😉



Passez une excellente journée, à bientôt …

Father Christmas Was Good to Me – Two New Arrivals!!!

26 Dec

Bonjour, mes amies!

Happy Boxing Day!

Yesterday Santa brought me two new little girls. My husband gave me Carole and my mum gave me Robyn. I tried to come up with two festive names for the season – and Holly had already been taken by one of my cats!

Carole arrived first thing in the morning with the rest of my presents.


This photo features the aforementioned Holly meeting Carole for the first time…


… meeting my other little girls for the first time …


… and here they all are playing in the mess of wrapping paper generated by my family.



And I collected Robyn later in the day when we all went through to my Mum’s for Christmas dinner. Here she is beside my mother’s nativity scene.



And now both of them together in front of my Xmas tree. Aren’t they lovely?


Robyn is my first redhead and she is named for the cute little garden bird with the red breast that is such an iconic symbol of winter. Carole’s name is obviously after a carol song and also an old close friend of mine. Carole is the doll I thought I had bought when I accidentally managed to buy two Camilles last week. I was so pleased and surprised that my husband chose this one for me.


I’m on holiday now so I should manage to come up with new outfits for them soon. I must go and choose some yarn and a pattern or two …

I’ll keep you posted!

Happy Boxing Day!!! À bientôt …
