Something to Smile About

Here's what I've been working on - and finished!

The pattern is called "Which do you choose?" and you pick the different motifs and knit as long as you want in each one.

This is my swatch where I practiced the stitches.
It was really fun to knit and because I enjoyed it so much, 
I'm thinking of knitting another one - 
only it will be totally different because I'll make different choices.

Memory Lane:  I remember when I was a little girl living in Kingston, Jamaica, a neighbor lady crocheted each of us sisters a skirt.  I loved mine SOOO much.  I was really sad when I outgrew it.  I think that skirt was part of the reason that I wanted to knit a dress.

I outgrew it as I got taller and  it got shorter and shorter.
