Winning! A Knitted Ballerina!

I couldn’t resist the Giveaway offered by Edna at crayonsandmilk.  Her knitted toys are delightful.

I won a doll and chose the ballerina, which I gave to my granddaughter. She’s not quite ready for ballet lessons, though she seems to have pilates and yoga mastered. Oh to be as supple and flexible!
