* failed Blythe stocking

Posted on June 24th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Blythe, Experiments.

I tried to make Blythe a fishnet stocking with my fun knitting spool. I used sewing thread with an 8-poster in the hopes of making a tube big enough to fit over Blythe’s legs. You can see the result of this experiment below. Main problem, the tube was not wide enough. I dropped a stitch in the back to make it go on this far. Also, the thread tube is really hard to handle. It’s easy to snag and pull out of shape. Also, Blythe’s legs are made out of this kind of sticky plastic, so it required some pulling to get them on, further aggravating the snagging problem. Anyway, I think I will abandon this line of work and make Blythe stockings out of fabric instead.

    Great idea though! I tried to make sleeves for a Blythe sweater with the same technique but encountered the same problem – it just wasn’t wide enough to get her arm in…
