A little cute for today

Sorry about the quiet blog lately! I've been busy settling a new veterinarian in at work. I have completed a few doll things that need to be photographed! I have a new plum-colored knit dress for my Pukifee Ante (Madeline) and I have a nearly-completed hanky dress on my Suchin. I am hoping tonight to have time to sew on a collar and button to that dress and then I will photograph it whenever I get a minute.

Pictured here is Bobbin (Realpuki Soso) wearing her wig from Beachgirl Nikita's Guys and Dolls ebay shop and her dress made by me. I scaled down the free pattern I used previously for Ante's dress. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong when I'm knitting that the stitches don't come out nice and even? I think I am using different tensions for my knit and purl rows when I'm making stockinette stitch, but I'm too inexperienced a knitter to be able to diagnose the problem. Help?

I can't help you with your knitting question...I am an even more inexperienced knitter than you are, but she sure is cute!!

I had a friend who had knitting turn out like this, I think she was twisting the stitches somehow each row.

I think Soso looks adorable in her dress. I don't know how to knit, so I surely can't help you there, but I can commend your efforts. I love knitted dolly things. :o)
