I'm done with Barbie...

My fingers and I are glad to announce, without a bit of reserve, that I am done with Barbie! Well, I am done with her new wardrobe, knitted on teeny, tiny, size ZERO (2mm) needles, at least! 

My goal was to knit 24 pieces of clothing for Mork and Mindy to put into Peanut's Advent Mittens for her to count down to Christmas...remember the mittens

Anyway, I ended up accidentally knitting 25 pieces of clothing. (Please pardon the background in that first shot. Barbie was picking out her outfit this morning, and she didn't have time to tidy up before I arrived. I was so excited to see the Princess's new clothes that I just barged in there with my camera.) There are 9 short-sleeved tops, 2 sweaters, 8 pencil skirts (one with a ruffle), 2 fuller skirts, 1 pair of pants and 3 dresses. So glad I finished in time to get them into the mittens before Dec. 1st! Whew! But my fingers are ready for a change, so you know what I'm going to knit next?

That's! Glove/mittens, in fingering weight yarn, on size 1 (2.25mm) needles for Peanut! After that, maybe some bulky knitting? And maybe not...I seem to be smitten with the tiny, tiny knittin'!

What are you smitten with? A contest perhaps? Or is it something in your knitting basket? Tell me in the comments for a chance to win a Christmas surprise from Pretty!

Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
