I love to knit and I just found the coolest shop that stocks tiny needles and sock wool. Sock wool is the best scale for knitting for dolls, especially 11.5 and 16 inch dolls.
For those of you who don't knit, but can sew, a really cool tutorial was just posted on a list I'm on about sewing sweaters from socks. Even though I can knit, I thought I might just like to try this out.
