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.
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.
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.
