Connect the Dots knitting
I was searching for Barbie. You would think this would be easy. No. Barbie is not easy to find in a world of Disney Princesses and Hannah Montana everything. Not to mention Dora the Explorer and Bratz dolls. All of them have their place, but I needed Barbie. This neice is the 4th or 4 girls with a significant age gap between the rest. Hannah Montana was playing with Barbie when these big sisters were growing up. Disney had a Princess or two. And I believe Ken was still interested in Barbie then.
Anyhow after a long search, I found some Barbie coloring books. They came with crayons. Real crayons that make color on paper and perhaps the table they are colored on. My sister still believes it is okay to have paint to play with. No water magic stuff that keeps the precious house perfect. She also believes in play doh. I love my baby sister for this.
While I was searching for Barbie things, I found a connect the dots coloring book. You see, this is where my art habits were formed. If you could count, and I could!, you could make a picture. Who knew what the picture would be? That was half the fun. Figuring it out.
Now I have been trying to find my Color Self to help with my yarn choices.
Well I now know why I am having a hard time.
I need connect the dots knit patterns!
Do this and this and this
and it will suddenly be something.
Without even thinking about it!
I once got a D in art.
(have I already mentioned this?)
So no wonder I look like this LIFE mag knitter trying in earnest to knit something great.
Does anyone know of connect the dots knitting???
Did you connect the dots?
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
