Enter This Joy, a blog that has superb knitting patterns for Monster High dolls. This Mad Science Lagoona Blue came to me sans clothes (and part of one arm), and thus she is my
this post, her cape came from here, and her hat is this pattern. I wanted some continuity in this outfit, so the hat and cape are knitted from a ball of Premier Yarns Wool-Free Sock. This yarn is wove together in an unusual way, so that a strand of it somewhat resembles a spring. Thus it has a nice stretch to it. This particular color is aproprately called "Grapes." I used the same yarn to make a dress for Ju-hwang last summer.
Lagoona's new dress is...well, I had the band once, but it's disappeared into my collection of yarn bands. I think it's another sock yarn, Red Heart Heart and Sole in "Green Envy." I also used this yarn last summer, in another dress for Ju-hwang.
lolita-style pattern from Modern Monstrosities, and the yarn I used is a mecurized cotton called Omega Sinfonia. The color I used is "Azul Rey," but any of the other colors will do. It's nice to see a fine-gauge yarn in a bold, solid color, particularly when most of Hobby Lobby's fine yarns are either striped, white, or pastel in color. Anyway, when I finish the dress I'll share it here! As an aside, Lagoona's green dress fits the slim bodies of La Dee Da dolls with aplomb. I'll have to test out the blue dress when it's complete and see if it will fit.
I bought a couple more balls of sock yarn over the weekend, so there will be other dresses in the making. Stay tuned!
