Knitting WIP

Good Morning Lovely People.

I have now been knitting for around a year. Till recently I have knitted only basic squares but I find that gets a little tedious. I thought the time has now come to push my very basic skills.

A good while ago I purchased a magazine that had a rag doll pattern in it with outfits that you can also knit. Well of course the little lady who is coming up for 6 now wanted it. At the time I hadn't learnt to knit so i stored the pattern for later.

Last week I decided it was time, and after a little help in translating the very confusing pattern I set to knitting her. I obviously have not finished her yet but here she is so far...

She is not the most beautiful knitting you have ever seen, however that said I am very proud I have come this far with her.

as any other knitter/crocheter I have many other WIP's at present but this is the one I am the most proud of.

I am linking in with Tami today, pop by and check the other WIP'ers.

I am very sorry but I am still unable to follow any of your lovely blogs but I do keep adding my follows on bloglovin where possible. Just because I don't follow your blog publicly it doesn't mean I am not interested, I just have not figured out the issue with following people as yet.

Thanks for stopping by and reading about my Knitting adventures today.

Well Hello blog land.

I know this may look like a brand new sparkley blog but in fact I have been blogging for a while now.
I used to blog as All4meggymoo, however something strange occurred and that blog has been lost in cyber world somehow never to be seen again. So here I am under my new name of Little House in the Corner.

I hope you will visit me here and read all about my crafty goings on & all of my adventures. I am looking forward to your visits.

Have a great day
