Knit the Classics and Paper Dolls

Melanie at tea reads has another blog, Knit the Classics, that makes me wish I could do more than just "knit, purl" in a straight line. They knit something that represents each novel they are reading, and my favorite is Count Fosco's Mouse.

This site is so much fun--a gallery of paper dolls! Here is Mr. Darcy (run the cursor over him and his clothes change) and Mr. Knightley and The Scarlet Pimpernel and Jane Eyre and Emily Dickinson.


  1. Thanks for the shoutout! Knit the Classics is a community - we'd love to have more readers and knitters (or crocheters) over there!

    I am absolutely in love with Emily Dickinson as a paper doll - I'm going to play with Emily now...

  2. tea bird - I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Couldn't comment there, but had to mention Count Fosco's mouse somewhere!

    I may order some paper dolls and frame them. The literary aspect tickles me~

  3. With regard to the paper doll site, I particularly liked Jane Hare...

  4. Oh man I could play on that paper doll site a good long time! I love it. Reminds me of good times when I was little. I had such a collection of paper dolls.

  5. I so wish I could open the link for the paperdolls. It's not working for me. I'll keep trying though. So sad.

  6. The paperdolls are so cute! What an inventive idea by the artist, and she's got quite a collection.

  7. Jill - Jane Hare is a perfect choice for Easter, isn't she?

    iliana - The added bit of using the cursor to change costume was brilliant. Look Ma, no scissors!

    Annie - Hope you've been able to open it by now, but I'll send you the link.

    Lesley - I agree, an inventive idea that appeals to children of all ages!
