Amilia Thistledown

Amilia Thistledown, a golden skinned elven child with a talent for spinning thistledown into gossamer yarn, to knit lighter than air fairy shawls :-)

She is a Grace Notes doll, with elf ears.  Her hair is fun fur, which is a fun and easy way to make a doll wig.  She has dangly glass earrings, and her dress is basically the nightgown pattern with a different lace edging.  Her shawl is pretty close to thistledown; knit from lace weight silk/mohair yarn.

We took pictures in Garfield Park and around the conservatory.  So many pretty purple flowers!

    1. Thank you so much, Sherry. Actually, the dress is simply the nightgown pattern with a different lace edging. The edging is from the book "50 Fabulous Knitted Lace Stitches.' I borrowed it from our local library, then decided I just had to have it! This pattern was called 'coral' and worked up pretty easy.
