Finished these today :) Super easy. I couldn't find black velvet tubing so I used Bernat "Blanket" yarn that feels like velour for the legs. It's flip and sew quilt as you go. Bought the pattern from Michelle's Quilts N Things in Maryland a couple of years ago. Michelle's is my all time favorite quilt shop. These go in the mail on Monday :)

For my sister in law's doll. The skirt was a Simplicity Pattern for dolls. The sweater is modified from a pattern by "Donna's Delights". The emblem I bought on Etsy. The hat is me just winging it. The yarn is Cascade 220. I found blue and yellow shoes at Homesew.com. They have a really good selection of doll shoes. I can't look at these colors anymore. Go Bruins!!

Pattern is called Tuffy. It is a free boot sock pattern available on Ravelry by Kate Atherly using Briggs & Little Canadien Sock yarn. The yarn is an Aran weight. Great when you're knitting a pair of socks for Sasquatch. :)
I found the yarn at Halcyon in Bath, Maine. The socks look as if it will take a beating. I finished this pair while on vacation in Bar Harbor and Booth Bay, Maine. I heavily modified the pattern. What parts I didn't understand, I just ignored and did the way I normally make a sock. Definitely making more of these. Already have the yarn in Navy blue and green.
