Making peace with Double Points

HarmonyAnn is my second Hippie doll from the Arne & Carlos book "Knit and Crochet Garden."  I've made my peace with double point knitting needles, and although the first few rounds of knitting are still a bity wonky, it is worth putting up with as the doll unfolds upon the needles.  Nice it is there are minimal seams to sew :-)

  2. Harmony is delightful Beth. Wouldn't it be nice if we could use the cable knit needles instead of DPNs? I love my cables but they just can't get down small enough to start or finish off. You did such a lovely job stitching Harmony's eyes. That isn't easy to do in knit or crochet. Another lovely doll my dear.

    1. Joyce, I keep hearing about a way to use circular needles for tiny work like this, called a 'magic circle.' You might look it up on Ravelry. And thank you so much for your good words, dear friend :-)
