a knitted treasure

a knitted treasure
It's hard to believe she'll be 18 months old soon. She finally started walking about a month ago. But really I wanted to show you this amazing dress that my dearest Allyn knitted for her (is the past tense of knit, knitted?)

I can't believe how perfect and tiny these little stitches are. I can't believe she frogged a cardigan she started to make this instead.  I can't believe she did this while taking care of 5 kids and getting ready to deliver her 6th.  She is AMAZING.

This will be a dress we treasure long after she outgrows it. Thanks dear friend.

18 months??? You're kidding me!! I can't believe she's so big... and what a little doll she is, too! The dress is absolutely adorable, too. What a great friend!

after all that "laying flat to dry" over and over, the bottom is still curling up. i gotta learn how to loosen my tension. i am so glad that it fits her and goes over her sweet little head. it looks perfectly feminine on her. glad to get it to you before she graduated from high school.

My SIL made Creamie a little pink dress for her first Easter that I love more than most anything else she ever wore. And I dont have a single picture of her in it! Love that second picture, it is priceless.

OH those chubby behind-the-knee-creases look delicious. The dress is so precious. What a work of art. So detailed and darling. You have the greatest friends!

That is 'sew' darling. Guess it isn't 'sew' since it is knitted, but both she and the dress are adorable. ~Kimberlee
