Millie’s “Cozy Christmas Color”

My tiny (11″) Kay Wiggs illie, Millie, is here today modeling her new (and first of the season) Christmas ensemble.  Doesn’t she look festive, cozy, and warm?

      Hi Regina and thank you. I am so happy you like little Millie all dressed up for the holidays. She has loved modeling this set for all of you and has been whispering in my ear, “What will you make me next?”. lol

    HI Cindy,
    Is Millie’s hat the one you learned using the DPN’s or whatever it was called? It looks really sweet and you did a fantastic job on it… just like you always do on everything you make. She looks very pretty in her new Christmas set. I like that really fine mohair yarn used for her sweater and I see her little heart bracelet got made from some of your new beads.
    She’s a sweetheart of a doll! Very cute, Cindy!
    Blessings, Jeanne

      Hi Jeanne,
      I think Millie’s hat was the 3rd piece that I knit in the round on DPNs. Lately I’ve got it down to using 3 needles comfortably, so it goes faster. I am glad I finally figured this process out! It will be perfect for lace hats which don’t look the best with a seam.
      I have lots of heart beads; this one is from my stash. I can’t remember where I got it, but I’ve had a small bag of them for years.
      Thanks for your sweet comments, Jeanne! Have a peaceful and beautiful Sunday.
