Purl The Little Knit Girl

One year (I think it was 2014) when Dena and I went to Stitches South together, we found a book about Purl the Little Knit Girl.  We got the book and a bunch of the yarn.  About a month later I knit Purl and her acorn outfit.  Then she got put down and the book put away for other knitting.

A few weeks ago, Steve and I went on vacation to the beach.  I didn't have any sample knitting going on, so I just brought fun knitting.  Purl came along for the ride.

This is Purl's Flower Pot and Flower Outfit.  I didn't follow the pattern for the flower pot but did for the outfit.  I think my flower pot turned out ok.

This is Purl's Pea Pod and Pea outfit.  I enlarged the pod pattern because when I made them exactly following the pattern, they shrank too much and Purl couldn't get inside them.

 Purl's Corn out fit and Corn Cob.  This one was a bit more work and a lot more yarn because there is a complete yellow corn thing inside the green one.  

Here is Purl and all the outfits I have made so far.  There are still at least two more to make - another flower outfit and vase and a pumpkin outfit and house.  No telling how long it will take for me to get around to knitting those.  She's such a cute little thing that maybe it will happen soon!

She is completely adorable! I can't decide which is my favorite, maybe the flower pot?

Purl is adorable! I think my granddaughters would get a kick out of her.
