Finally, after 3 + years, Rosie is finished!
After many late nights, this marathon of a project is complete.
Not that the project was that hard, there were a lot of parts to it, but many factors led to it taking forever to complete. We moved, three times (one being cross continental), everything we owned was in storage for a year, it was one of the first real knitting patterns I had done, therefore I had made tons of mistakes (mainly the yarn weight and needle combination) it took a while to remember how I made those mistakes in order to make them again, I got endlessly distracted and completely unmotivated. Only recently did something click and make me want to finish Rosie.
Who is Rosie?
She lives in this pretty plastic canvas box.
She is made of yarn and much larger than anticipated. (That’s what happens when you use a cotton worsted weight, thinking it won’t make much of a difference, (the yarn was supposed to be fingering weight)) (The needles were size 3, my hands hurt just remembering it).
Despite all her minor imperfections. (Like a severe lack of mattress stitch seams, resulting in many franken-seams).
She is a fairy princess.
You know what?
I think she should too. After all, I would love to master this pattern and now that my knitting hands are wiser.
I think we’ll name her Buttercup.
One thing is for sure though, she will not have her own closet. I forgot how tedious a giant plastic canvas project can be!
If you want to make your own Rosie, with her own wardrobe, all patterns came from this book:
