Hi Doll Eyes!


Lisa in New Zealand used 13 shades of green, gray, brown and gold to embroider the iris for her doll eyes. She used a photo of her own eye as a guide. Lisa aims to create cloth dolls like the ones from the 1930's, but with a more updated look. You can see how she does it here: Big Little.

Socks Made From Sweater Sleeves!


Socks made from sweater sleeves! How clever is that?
This photo is from Autumn Enchanted, a cache of cozy autumn photos.
The site isn't for knitters, so it doesn't give any info about how to deal with the raw edge at the top of the sleeve. But if the sweater was in throw-away condition anyway, we'd figure it out.
