dolls

Posted on november 1st, 2009 in BJD,knitting by Meike

Hi there! My apologies for the long(ish) absence… There wasn’t all that much to report hereabouts, apart from my BJD obsession, which is quickly getting out of hand!

I’ve now got TWO dolls on the way: my Felixdoll Brownie and a Lati Yellow Byurl Basic with premium face-up (sponsored partly by my darling parents, who didn’t mind me using my birthday money this way all that much… They must think me quite out of my mind, but hey, they’ve had 35 years to get used to the idea. πŸ™‚ ).Β  And then, there are two dolls on my wish list at the moment: the Lati Green grown-up Coco, with whom I fell in love the minute I saw her, and a Pocket Fairy. I’m not quite sure which of the PF I’m going to decide for in the end, but it’s a very close race between the Yoko and the Choco mold. And nope, I didn’t come up with those names! Now all I’ve got to do is somehow find the money… Do I hear you say Christmas? πŸ˜†

I’ve been ordering clothes for all these sweeties like mad too. I’m afraid to look too closely at my bank account right now. πŸ˜‰ My latest discovery: Boneka. A German company that has such wonderful doll clothes, it’s unbelievable!

In my defense, I’ve also started miniature knitting, so not ALL doll clothes will be bought from others… It took some practice getting used to my 1.5 mm needles, but I’m getting increasingly better at handling them! See:

Yup, having fun!

    I’ve browsed today on the net and found this – http://biscuitshouse.typepad.com/freebies/freebies.htm
    Don’t know is this the same type of dolls that you have, but maybe it would be interesting for you πŸ™‚

    Hello there,
    Just have a quick question for you. Where did you find the tiny double needles that you use for your doll knitting? We have been looking for some and have been unable to find any. My pastor’s wife has a pair from Germany that her Mother gave her years ago. I have never seen such a thing & would really like to know where I could acquire them at.
    Thank you!

    Hi there Holly! They were a gift… so I don’t know which brand they are! But I have heard great things about Hiya Hiya needles, which aren’t readily available in my neck of the woods, but you should be able to get them no problem. πŸ™‚ Their website is here: http://hiyahiyanorthamerica.com/index.php and they’ve got really, really thin needles. Happy knitting!
