four, three, two, one

I like to knit whimsical things. I also just like the word "whimsical". 

There is no more whimsical place that I know of than the home of the Wabi Sabi Wanderer, to photograph whimsical knitting. Could it be more perfect that she found her women folk lined up on a shelf with a wonderful backdrop? My Wabi Sabi friend exclaimed ,"She looks like YOU!" which delighted me because I was actually inspired by old photos of my grandmother Pearl. I'll take the compliment, thank you!

You can find a free pattern here!

These are so cute, too! And what about these ones? Or, oh my goodness, THIS!!

Watch this space...clearly it will soon be littered with photos of Matryoshkas! They're pretty hard to resist.


  1. Okay, so I said, "She looks like YOU! She is GORGEOUS!" Just sayin'. :-)

    I squealed when I saw these photos. Your whimsical endearing Matryoshka looks so happy hanging out with her kin, dusty shelf and all. ;-)

  2. My late sister brought me a set of Russian nesting dolls when we had a chance to be together in '05; they are a treasure that I fondle often when she comes to mind. You have awakened memories; for that I thank you.

  3. There is no doubt you are an amazingly good knitter. :)

  4. Wonderful! Love that little face.
