June 14th Update

I’ve been pretty busy making things the last few days, so I thought I’d condense it all down into one post.


I got a bag of assorted yarn at the thrift shop the other day, and when I got home the U-Nitt needles I ordered had arrived.  The size 1 and 2 needles feel pretty flimsy, but the 3 and ups are sturdy enough and the texture is decent, and it’s a good price to have all general sizes on hand.

It’s been fun knitting with smaller needles for the first time, and I can see how some people get so addicted to knitting for dolls (though keeping tension consistent at these gauges is a lot harder).  I haven’t been knitting very much since I’ve had other projects (and work), but I slightly modified the popular Lati Yellow Dress pattern into a heavy shirt/short-sleeved jacket for Littlefee and other 30 cm dolls.  I used Schachenmayr Nomotta Viola yarn on US size 2 needles.

I’m currently working on a doll vest pattern and should have that and pictures soon.

In somewhat unrelated news, my friend brought over her new kitten, and she got into my yarn stash.  It was adorable.

Digital Dolls

I haven’t done much pixel dolling, but I was recently inspired and made two dolls of my character Naia.  She’s a warrior from a race of elves called the Zhoke (the less politically correct term is “Shadow Elves”), and I drew her in her daily wear as well as full armor.

Whisper Mod

Our Whisper is mostly painted now, partially put back together and has a motherboard!  We’re going with a black and purple theme using Valspar paints, and the motherboard is an EVGA P55 FTW Edition.  I’ll do a full post with more details once we get a little more done.
