    Ann, Lily can be proud to show her new dress.I like the way she stands, as an experienced model.

    Andrea, I hope your aunt can manage to knit for you, but I also hope you find a way to knit comfortably yourself.

    Well done, Ann. That dress deserves to win a prize! Lily certainly looks as if she’s enjoying herself.

    That was considerate of them. A girl can only stand for so long when she’s doing her best to be still and look beautiful. I might try a contrasting accent the next time, though. Your photo has given me an idea.

    No, Peggy, its the stand they put her into so she wouldn’t fall over.

    Hey, Ann! Yay, you! I love the little accent at the bust. Did you run a cord through it?

    Wonderful Ann! Well done! She looks lovely. I do like her face. It’s open and friendly and gently sweet.

    Andrea, it is certainly worth a try. You never know, little knitted things might be just what your aunt can manage. On the other hand she might be too stiff or have concentration problems so that could be tricky. I am sure she will enjoy seeing the patterns whatever the outcome.
    Ann, well done. Lily looks lovely in the dress and is standing very proudly in it. She’s a sweet dolly.

    I’m hoping that you can find a way to knit comfortably, Andrea. Though I’ve cut back on knitting a lot right now, I do enjoy my knitting time.

    I submitted the dress I made from Peggy’s pattern and Lily proudly modeled it in a class at the fair. It was an open class so she competed against other types of knitting. She got 2nd prize.

    The ladies who received my entries said that the dress pattern was well designed so congratulations Peggy on doing a great job on your pattern.

    Pam, my aunt is an expert knitter and used to do the most gorgeous lacy, elaborate things, so I am sure she can do just about anything knitting wise. It’s just that she is in her 80’s now and not well, so I don’t know if she will feel up to it.

    Once I am stuck inside in winter, I am planning on trying again and see if I can figure out a way to knit comfortably.

    I agree, Pam! What a shame to enjoy knitting and not be able to do it because of pain.
