Yesterday I received a set of interchangeable afghan hooks for my birthday from My Honey. Of course, I came right home and had to try them out. ;)
I designed and made this sweater for my 18" doll, Ginger. The pattern is below if you would like to make one, too.
Thanks, Honey, for the new hooks! I just love new toys for my needlework projects.
