Kit All Ready For A Winter Adventure
This is the second of Maulfrid's patterns that I have knit as part of a Knit Along with the American Girls Knitting group on Ravelry.
I loved making this pattern with a group of other knitters where we could all assist each other and could admire the various colorways each person had chosen. Some people chose their child's favorite colors, others emulated Maulfrid's original choice, I chose to use a traditional colorway of black, red, and white.
Each year I make and donate 20 to 30 knitting and sewn garments for 18" dolls provided by a local chapter of a national charitable organization. The doll clothing I make will adorn dolls in a Christmas Toy Shop organized by the charity.
Parents who might not have been able to provide holiday gifts for their children are allowed to choose a doll and additional clothing for their daughter.
My hope is to produce clothing that makes children dream of a larger life than they may be experiencing now.
I feel that Maulfrid's marvelously detailed and exceptionally beautiful patterns help me to reach that goal.
