This is a Blythe / knitting post :)

I wasn't kidding :)

I haven't named the Blythe dolls (yet).
The mushroom girl above is orginally called Groovy Groove. I bought her from an auction on ebay. From the way it looks, ebay dolls are very expensive.  Groovy Groove normally costs 4X what I won her for! I took a risk because the picture wasn't very good on the listing. I am soooo glad I did.
She's perfect.
My girls love her.
We also had Guava arrive from Hong Kong.
She's already stolen Groovy's jacket.

And Mango tried on Groovy's overalls.

I finished the pixie hat I was knitting last week.
It knit up quick since it is so small.

And I started a beanie for Blythe yesterday :) with some scrap yarn.

So that's my first post with the 3 new Blythe dolls. I do not have any new ones coming, I am checking more ebay auctions though. I'd like to adopt a few more 'used' Blythes.   I feel better about the used dolls as the girls can play with them and I don't feel like croaking if they drop it. I have let them play with them as they wish and sooo far they've done okay.
I figure if we are buying dolls....we should get to 'play' with them too.
Once I take it out of the box...they can play.
I have been sewing up a bunch of clothing for them and found some Skipper sized shoes that pretty much fit their feet.  Seems their feet are a bit bigger than a Kelly doll and  a bit smaller than Skipper  :( 
I could buy shoes on ebay?? I decided to hold on buying just yet. I am hoping I can find some cheaper shoe shoe alternatives like Goodwill thrifting!
