Chenille sweater based on the poinsettia wrap from knitscene magazine, knitted with two different chenille yarns that match perfectly together! I was so pleased to discover it makes a great outfit along with this skirt I already had.

A closer look

This is a really a very simple top, all stockinette and garter stitch but it's the yarns that make it.

Presenting miss purplicious, a sexy redhead who loves purple (obviously!) and even has purple eyes to match. She is all dressed up for a night out wearing a mohair corset top and sparkly mini skirt with matching long gloves.

miss purplicious is an amigurumi doll inspired by an image in my mind and a few gorgeous purple yarns: mohair (top), sparkly merino (skirt & gloves), velvet chenille (boots).

I am still working on her, I believe she requires a bit more bling. Plus I realised that I am making a mistake crocheting the way I do which produces a not so tight fabric ( as it should be for amigurumi).

Armed with my experience from making miss love bump and miss purplicious as well as loads of new supplies (!) I am now in the process of making improved versions of both these amigurumi dolls. My amigurumi dolls will soon be listed in my etsy shop, so please keep checking if you like them.

A new one - miss daisy - is also coming up soon based on a beautiful costume made for me by my grandmother when I was very little. She was an amazing lady whose talent remained unrecognised so I will strive to bring some of her designs to light and hope it will make her happy watching from up there.
