Beautiful work

Our immediate past president, Donna, has been having a lot of fun knitting for her new granddaughter. Her latest creations:

This little dress has many marvelous details. The bodice is worked in ribbing and then smocked later in a contrasting color. Lace is added around the hem, collar, and cuffs. Even the pockets have embellishment!

Donna has already knitted Christmas stockings for both the grandsons. So, the granddaughter had to have her own. Obviously, this is not a project for those who are afraid of color work. The angels around the cuffs almost look like butterflies. Very appropriate for a young lady!
