Dollveralls and Longies Stocked to the Shop

Dollveralls, a pattern designed by Korin Bourdo

Knit using a color from “Little Trunks Knits”  called Yacht Club.

Sized for a 10-12 inch waldorf doll. Matching cap completes the outfit.

Listed and ready to pop in the mail


Longies have nearly sold out of the shop this winter.

I hadn’t realize just how low till I received an e mail asking if I still stocked them!

This is a medium to large pair I’d had in the works…a mid weight merino that will be a nice weight to transition into spring.


Rather than longies, I think at this point in the season I’ll be focusing on shorties for summer.  I’ve a few pair in the works along with a few soakers and skirts. 

More doll clothes to be listed in the shop within the next few days. 
Stay warm out there

A Fresh New Year

Awaits us!

My knitting and quilting baskets are full to overflowing!

2013 was a wonderful year and I’ve many fun & fantastic customers to thank for that.  I ended the year with a few secret surprise custom knits. 

One such knit was this set


The Mama was kind enough to send me photo’s of her happy little girl


Each attempt to enlarge them makes then very distorted…but I think her smile says enough!

The second set, longies, dress and sweater


There are about 20 projects I’ve already lined up to work on between customs & I’m eager to start.

I’ve Dollverall’s waiting for buttons, doll dresses blocking  and a test knit that needs photo’s taken .I should have photo’s taken and listings up tomorrow.

Today I’m casting on a custom All in One Sweater & a simple cowl.  The snow is blowing & knitting…it should keep my fingers nice and warm.

Hope this new year brings you Peace and Goodness

Sugar Plum Waldorf dresses finally listed

I’ve had these dresses nearly ready for over a month.

They have been in the design works since early summer but, special orders and my sewing machine took all my spare time.

With Christmas and Black Friday shopping on the way I decided I needed to make them a priority!I

This first dress is washable…I fell in love with the colors & thought most little girls would as well.  The 2 accent buttons are from Corina of Ayarina’s Button shop on Etsy


This single skein of gradient wool has sat in my wool basket for months waiting to decide what it wanted to be. In the middle of knitting the first dress, it nearly jumped up and down shouting at me.  I love how it turned out with the shades of lavender to purple flowing down the dress


A few other items listed

A bright skirt to match nearly any top or sweater


A sweet skirt and sweater set


And rainbow longies for a smaller doll, (which will be listed this afternoon.)


3 or 4 sweater in bright colors will also be listed once I sew buttons on…and that will happen if I can put down the next Sugar Plum dress!

And yes!  I will have store wide Black Friday sale!!

Info to follow tomorrow here and on Facebook!

Are you ready for Thanksgiving?

Have a wonderful day!

Sweet Vintage Sweet

Another sweet pattern from DaKine Knits. If you’ve not knit one you are missing out. Super fun and a quick knit.  Since our leaves have turned and the frost has been showing early mornings I thought stocking a few warm hats to the Etsy Shop would be a good idea.

Here are a few I recently added


A few Poppy Hats were added as well


And a couple of custom hats that have shipped


And I’ve yet to list…about 5 more. 

As always they are waiting for photos.

Summer saw us super busy with family & the garden so posting’s were far and few between. I still knit off and on so there are numerous items to list yet. Longies are being stocked weekly, doll clothes are piled waiting for….you guessed it photos!

The next few days I’ll have posts of recently listed longies and doll clothes.

I’m back open for customs! 

I have a few in progress (oh,I need to up-date the customs page!) and will have plenty of time for a few Christmas knits as well.

Welcome Fall!

Stay warm out there!

Starting The Fall Knits

It’s 90 degrees out and I’m starting fall knits….

sounds CrAzY right?

With my arm injury unfortunately I couldn’t knit for several months.  This summer the shop sold down till it was nearly empty & I feel like I’m starting all over …

Maybe I need to have a Grand Re-opening? Hmm, need to think about that more.

Anyways, new items stocked to the Katidids Etsy Shop

Pixie hat/BOGO from Carina Spencer….when worn the corners pop up.  Knit to coordinate with


Small Longies.  A next to the skin soft merino wool. I love the colors in this, a twist on the traditional Camo with greys blended in


Waldorf Doll Longies using 100Purewool. 

Bits left over from the newborn outfit


Both are listed to the shop & ready to ship.

Right now the needles are actually empty! 

Doesn’t happen very often LOL! I stayed up last night finishing a bit of personal knitting & I’ll have photos to show once it’s blocked.

Hmm, what’s next?  I’m thinking something a bit girlie

Have a great week!

Starting a bit of fall knitting. 

Sized to fit size 3-5 a short sleeved capped sweater and matching hat. Perfect for layering in the changing fall weather. 

I dug into the acrylic/wool blend for this one…making it totally washable!



And then there is a pair of Waldorf Doll Longies. Knit in a  green and grey camo….


These have a 5 inch inseam & will fit a variety of dolls.

Small Longies using Moonlight & Laughter’s worsted wool. (I love her colors)

A fun mix of girlie colors

Ruffles and eyelets ready for ribbons (if you so choose) finish the legs.
