I get request from time to time for a dress (usually a military camouflage dress). About a month (probably longer) ago I got a request from a friend of an old friend. And I thought, perhaps I'd give it a try and see if I could get a dress done. I warned her that it would probably take me about a month. Sadly, I wasn't over estimating. I just don't knit like I used to. Sometimes it's because I simply don't have time, and other times I find my hands and arms start to hurt if I knit for more than ten minutes.
However, I did manage to finish this one dress. It's a very simple cami marine camouflage dress, but for as long as it took me you'd think I'd knit up a turtle neck long sleeve.
