A Little Sweater



When I was heading away last weekend to my cousins wedding in Virginia I was in need of a little knitting project to keep me busy on the drive...I decided on this little sweater for an American Girl doll. A dear friends little girl made her first trip to the American Girl store in New York City a few weeks ago...and I thought maybe she could use a little sweater to add to her dolls wardrobe.

To model it for you I went up into the attic to find one of Cindylou's dolls, Kit. What memories it brought back to go through her dolls that we packed away several years ago...I can remember it like it was yesterday the day she opened Kit for her birthday. How fast it all goes by....



I found four little flower buttons in my button collection that worked nicely....and sewed them on with coordinating thread. The perfect little sweater for a chilly spring day.

Reminds me of all the clothes my mom made for my dolls when I was little!

I love it! We just had an American Girl delivered to our doorstep a few weeks ago.
