Arne & Carlos knitted dolls

When I saw these dolls
I knew I wanted to make them, so cute.

They are from the book
Knitted dolls from the 
Norwegian knit designers Arne &Carlos.

In the book the patterns for the dolls
and a wardrobe to.

I never knitted with 4 needles
but hey, if you can knit with two 
four must be possible too and not that difficult.
So I thought.

I needed some help from my sewing teacher
(she is a star in all crafts)
but looking at her demonstrate 
it looked like a magic skill.
A skill I would probably never learn.

My thoughts went to all the yarn I already bought
so I tried mastering this skill
and tried and tried.
After 2 hours I was able to knit with 4 needles
but still had some holes that should not supposed to be there.
At home I thought I would try 
to knit a Christmas ball first
from their book 55 Christmas balls to knit.

And succeeded
the key thing was to follow their instructions exactly.
No holes, yeah,  and already a knitted ball for Christmas.
Just need to embroider and fill it
I hope I will get that done before Christmas.

Have a nice weekend.
