New Petite Blythe knitting patterns

New patterns! New patterns!

I wrote summer themed patterns for Petite Blythe over a year ago: Ombre Bathing Suit for Petite Blythe and Hairbands for Petite Blythe. Finally, they are written up for Petite fans.

Shop link:

The patterns are sold separately.  The swim suit has dyeing tips and explanations.  Coming soon is swim suits for Neo Blythe.  I had a request through Ravelry.  I'm working on several styles and fine tuning them.  Hopefully I will have them ready by next week.

Blythe a Day June 14th-17th

June 14th: Tell me a story- Rabbit want a story about cowboys.

June 15th: Heart- Ginny is wild at heart.

June 16th: What's in your pocket?- Gatsby has a half eaten gingerbread man in her pocket.  At least he looks happy about it.

June 17th: You've got mail- Sun says, "Open the Birchbox, woman!" Someone is impatient.

I'm skipping June 12th.  I can't get myself motivated to go back.

Blythe a Day June 10-11th, June 13th

I'm trying to catch up! Once you get off the list it is a challenge to get back on.  I've got four days to catch up on including today.

June 10th: CANDY- Gatsby says, "What's up with the hamburger? You know I only eat candy."  Spoken like a true phene.

June 11th: Put a bird on it- Jason has a bird on her sweater and she has put the Cinderella birds to work.

June 13th: Underneath- Lemon Drop fairy underneath the lilies.

Cherry Beach Sunset Blythe

Borrowed from Plastic Fashion on Flickr, which was borrowed from Junie-Moon-CWC

The last newly released Blythe that I purchased was Mandy Cotton Candy last April/May.  The only Blythe that I've ever purchased exclusively by the illustration was the middie, Melomelomew.

The July release has caught my attention:  Cherry Beach Sunset.  She is one that I would purchase from the illustration alone.  I'm afraid I've missed my chance.  C&C Toys had a pre-order sale this morning that lasted 3 minutes.  That does not sound overly promising.

If I don't catch her elsewhere, I guess I will have to face the reality of not getting her.  I fear she will be another Alexis Emerald.

ETA: I entered the Junie Moon lottery (closing June 8th.) June 10th is the invoice day (maybe on June 9th for me due the the dateline.)  I will see what happens.  I don't have overly high hopes.  7-6-2015

ETA: I didn't win the lottery.  I'm guessing I will survive not having.

Blythe a Day: June 3rd- 9th

June 3rd: Rainbow- Knit the rainbow.  Monroe working on a silk rainbow top.

June 4th: Laundry- Gidget is having one of those days where she has to wash clothes to have something to wear!

Extra: A chihuahua is always nearby.

June 5th: Decisions, decisions- Merrick is debating, healthy orange or sugary cupcake.

June 6th: Seashore- Peach and Pretzel are packed for the seashore. I haven't broken it to them that we are land locked.

June 7th: Don't give up- Nova posing with my grad school official transcript.  It was a challenging two years, but I did it.

June 8th: Stars/Moon- Moon showing off her star on her cheek and moon eye chips.

June 9th: Birthday- Lemon says, "It's my birthday and I can wear my dragon suit if I want to."

Dinner Extras:

Doll inventory

New petite- Sunset Surfer

I thought I would list my current Blythe collection.  I have not done so in awhile.  I'd like to say I'm finished, but I'm sure I am not especially after seeing the illustration of a new release (swoon.)


ADG: Pow Wow Poncho

EBL: Bohemian Beats, Disco Boogie, Hollywood

SBL: Can Can Cat, I Love You It's True, Pow Wow Poncho

RBL: Simply Mango, Cassiopeia Spice, Prairie Prose,* Angelica Eve, Saffy, Sunshine Holiday

RBL+: Hi Ho Marine, Mandy Cotton Candy

FBL: Simply Vanilla

Factory/TBL: Custom, Dark Tan


My middie gang increased by two in a matter of months.

Macaroon Q-Tea Party, Lily Brown, Melomelomew, Suzy Hysteric, Nelly Nibbles, Furry Bella Bo, Alicia Cupcake, Twinkle Princess

I cannot name all of my petites.  I can say I bought Cinnamon Girl, Shanghai Season, and Sunset Surfer.  Out of the three Cinnamon Girl is my least favorite.  I'm still looking for a blue haired petite.

*  I have a mental block on this stock name.
