A girl's gotta twirl

In a dancer, there is a reverence for such forgotten things as the miracle of the small beautiful bones and their delicate strength.  ~Martha Graham

I am gradually recuperating from a more active than usual week.  Little Sarah and Katelyn came to visit while their parents went to Key West on vacation.  There was not a lot of time to sew, but I did have time to monogram a couple of twirly dresses for the girls.  This stairway dance gives an idea of how quiet our week was.
 I asked what color Katelyn wanted her monogram to be;  I wish I hadn't, I had my mind set on lime green and they would not be swayed from PINK. I used a ball point needle, polymesh stabilizer, another layer of tearaway under the hoop, and solvy on top of the knit.  I didn't have the slightest pucker. I used fonts that were a little less traditional, in a favorite shade of pink, knowing that they will twirl and enjoy their dresses wherever they go.
