Too Much Time, Too Much Scrap Yarn: Knit Dolls

My trio of knit dolls using scrap yarn from my stash were a diversion from my usually practical knitting. I had fun choosing the colors and styling the clothes. They are knit on three needles making tubes for all of the body parts.

For the boys, I used a crochet hook to hook the hair into the stitches like you would rug hooking on a canvas. Then, I untwisted the yarn's ply to give them a full head of hair. I hand stitched each strand of the girl's hair onto her head and had fun making the braids. The faces are felt.

What do you get up to with your needles or hooks when you have too much time on your hands and too much scrap yarn?

Happy fiber arting!
