Three smart girls 3

Wednesday, 7 March 2007

"And yet again: Three smart girls begin the day well with wool next the skin. Camiknickers are the choice of one, and she has made them in open-work stitch, in pale pink wool, combining prettiness with warmth. Very brief panties are the choice of the second; they are beautifully knitted to fit snugly, and show no wrinkles. The third still wears her bedjacket, the shortsleeved version with its dainty crocheted edges."
