Supersocke and Barbie

This is a poster for the Online SuperSocke Cottage line of sock yarns.

I have No. 1083, which is red to orange to tan.  I made a pair of socks for the Hubby, and then used the remainder for a Barbie sweater, from a pattern I found in "Knits for Barbie Doll" by Nicky Epstein.

I also have her "Crochet for Barbie Doll" book:

Both of these books are pretty cool - they are not simply duplicate versions of the same patterns, either: each is full of unique clothes I would have loved to have had when I was little.  As it stands, my girls are too old for Barbies.  Another person might be disappointed at this, but the way I see it, I get to keep the stuff I make. Boo-yah!


  1. The WWII fighter pilot in the picture above looks like he's suffering from the worst possible body crushing of his life, "Kids in the Hall" style.

  2. That or they're tickling him, in which case, let's hope those are clean socks...

  3. I think it's cool that they found four people with identical feet! Yep, it's me. Jollinar

  4. I guess you'd need identical feet to perfect the fine art of synchronized pilot tickling (or crushing, for that matter).
