I have been busy the past couple of days knitting some little clothes for Harper's dolls as a Christmas gift. Inspired by the little sweater I knitted for her on my knitting loom last year, I decided to go for a matching sweater and vest combo. Now both her dolls will be able to match and bundle up against the frigid weather we have been having. I hope she enjoys them!
