Dance Card (Crochet)
Dance card: card bearing the names of a woman's prospective partners at a formal dance.
Mom was a dancer. Look at her in this gorgeous ballgown. It still astounds me how dancing came so naturally to Mom. When she was in the moment, she had this perfect and graceful way about her that very few people share - I certainly do not! Mom was always very light on her feet. I'm guessing by all the full dance cards that we found in her keepsake box that the fellows didn't want to miss a spin around the dance floor with Alice. This pattern is the equivalent to our very easy Simply Alice pattern - only in a crochet version. Dancing was a no-brainer for Mom, so this pattern is the perfect one to pick up at any moment and know exactly what to do... hey, kind of like dancing was for Mom. Even when she was in the beginning stages (and likely far beyond that) of Alzheimer's disease, Mom would be the first one to jump up and dance if she had the opportunity. Next time you find yourself on the dance floor doing the Waltz, Foxtrot or Jitterbug... think of my mom and your feet just might do exactly what you want them to do.
