Knitting: Butterfly AG Doll Tights

This is the second pair of tights I've knit for The Broken Doll charity. I really like how they came out!

This design is called "butterflies". Can you see the butterfly design? It's really cute, and a unique way of creating the design.

I tweaked this pair a little bit, and you can read all the details on my project page here. (Please use this link, or you won't be able to access it unless you're a member of Ravelry.)

This is the same pattern as the last pair: Doll Tights and Socks by Angela Parker.

Knitting: Lace AG Doll Tights

I just discovered a new charity that does a fantastic job that I'd like to support. It's called The Broken Doll. It's run by a lady who fixes up thrift store 18" dolls to like-new condition and then donates them to the foster care system in her area. I offered to knit some clothes for the dolls (and keep my eyes out for rescue-able dolls at thrift stores), since this is a very worthy cause.

Since I just got a HUGE lot of fingering-weight (and light-fingering-weight) yarn at a thrift store, I decided to knit some doll tights.

This is a paid pattern, but it's very well-written and worth every penny. You can find the pattern on Ravelry here: Doll Tights and Socks by Angela Parker.

You can find my notes on this pair here. (You'll have to use this link, since I shared it exclusively through this link.)
