Frances has been working with Jill Bennett (of Jill Bennett Dolls) over recent weeks and Frances has completed a few small pieces of 1:12th scale knitting for Jill to use on or with her dolls. This has been a challenge for both Frances and Jill at times!

Jill is currently working on dolls to go on display in an exhibition of her work. This exhibition takes place in the summer. The doll above will feature in the exhibition as part of a group. We would like to thank Jill for kindly allowing us the use of these photographs. For those of you who are experienced knitters the knitting pattern for the slipover will be available shortly.
