A few days ago DD brought a Barbie doll from a local charity shop with her pocket money. She got a good deal paying just 50p because poor Barbie had no clothes, and some charity shop don't like to display naked dolls.
When we got home we wrapped her in a handkerchief with some elastic bands as a makeshift dress. DD was concerned she would be chilly. Meanwhile I looked up some free knitting patterns and discovered this little gem.
It took just two nap times to knit up and used up a few scraps of wool that wouldn't have made much else.
Only trouble is, now DD wants a whole Barbie wardrobe knitted up for her new friend. Best get knitting eh?
