Beautiful Forget-Me-Not
Amercian Girl doll - Pattern No 0027 Kirsten

My daughter has loved American Girl dolls since they first came out in the mid-1980's. She took this photo last fall of her beautiful 20+-year-old Kirsten dressed in Målfrid Gausel's pattern 0027.

I had knitted this lovely pattern in a Knit-A-Long with several other women on an online website. It was so wonderful to have their help and support while working on this outfit, and I look forward to knitting more with them in the future.

The Forget-Me-Not pattern was especially meaningful for my daughter and me because we had just heard that the Kirsten doll was going to be archived soon. In a way, this is a tribute to Kirsten, a lovely doll we will never forget!

My daughter has passed on her love of American Girl dolls to her three daughters, and they have all earned the money to buy themselves some of these lovely dolls. We have all enjoyed getting together to play with our dolls and create wonderful, fun times we will never forget!

Great Story - Beautiful Outfit
by: Penny

What a sweet story! Kirsten was one of my daughter's first American Girls dolls also. She and I were both very surprised to hear that Kirsten was being archived. It still seems like a mistake to me. Your outfit turned out beautifully. I'm really enjoying this chance to see all the projects again.
