After being Judge Ginsberg for quite awhile, Marietta decided to dress up for Halloween. She has a new shawl and hat.
The shawl is a shortened version of Skull shawl/Döskallesjal by kungen och majkis. It doesn't show up that well on her, but she needed something to tone down the purple T. I used a size 3 metal crochet hook and some very ancient, thrifted crochet thread. it bled a lot when I soaked it.
The hat is made of felt. I followed How to Make a witch hat for any size doll on Lomi's Playground on You Tube. Math was involved and it was also metric. Minimal hand sewing was involved. I had some black wire ribbon in stash and attempted a bow. I used some left-over green scrubbie cotton. It is a sorry decoration. Hope I get more ideas later.
After shopping for the proper pin, I found a cat pin in a drawer labelled Pins. Thank Marie Kondo for that, lol. I'd forgotten I had such a drawer. I suspect this came from mom's stash.
On the knitting scene, another Musselburgh is happening with a lovely blue yarn hand-dyed by Nanea of the now closed lys, Aloha Yarns. I really miss that place and it's lovely vibe.
Such an exciting life I lead.
