It’s been quiet around here for the past month, but that doesn’t mean that it’s been quiet around our house. The holiday season grabbed me by the feet and swung me around a few times. Now that I’m on break and back on my feet, I’ve been able to think about blogging again.
If you’ve been reading for awhile, you know that I knit myself a wedding shawl, but of course that wasn’t the only knitting going on for the wedding. I never really posted a final picture of the wedding shawl, and never talked about anything else, so I figured it was high time I did so. Let’s start with the shawl, shall we?
I didn’t get any great photos with it on me at the wedding because it was hot! I didn’t actually need it, but I’m so glad I had it. This was the one piece of clothing that mattered to me the most.
About a month before the wedding I realized I had promised Anthony some wedding socks, and I hadn’t started any. I turned these socks out in about two weeks, and they were perfect.
I also knit Anthony’s gift. I gave Anthony his first sweater for our engagement, and so it only seemed fitting that I give him a sweater for the wedding. This sweater took me forever due to knitting it only in secret! Anthony sometimes comes to the coffee shop where I go to Thursday night knitting, but I had to ban him from coming just so I could work on it.
The photos were taken in the Chinese Garden in Portland, OR, which was a beautiful place to take some photos.
As soon as the wedding was over, I had major cast-on-itis! So I’ve been busily knitting (and finishing) many projects. Plus, don’t be alarmed if the blog theme keeps changing. I’m playing with things, and haven’t been able to find something I’m happy with.
