Finished goodies…

August 11, 2010

Tonight I finished not one but two knits….more soon! I can’t show them right now as one might be going in a future issue of Yarn Forward, and one of them is my brand new knit for the Alexandra Palace show in October. At Knit Nation, I couldn’t help but notice all the lovely knits people were wearing, and Anna (who was proudly sporting one of her own designs, a rather chic woven knit jacket with a touch of the 1950s about it) suggested I wear of my own designs next time I go to a show. So I’ve made something special…


I’ve been a bit lazy recently…at least when it come to updates! (This is me relaxing at Avebury stone circle, by the way – clearly the ley lines had a positive effect on me.)

Anyhow, here is what I’ve been up to recently….the gorgeous bride was the second of my close childhood friends to tie the knot, and this time I was a bridesmaid!

(I’m the second on the left)

Both weddings this summer were incredibly important to me – and not just because they involved close friends. I’m always in awe of the commitment being made and the privilege and deep joy of sharing and witnessing that commitment.

Witnessing the pre-wedding panics from bride, bride’s mother, bride’s dad, bridesmaid, and myself was another matter altogether…I think the only people not freaking out by ten to twelve were the flower girls (who, at 6 and 8, were too young to be bothered by anything as silly as things going to plan – they were just having fun!)

Setting out into the future…

…meanwhile, I had a lie down!

(I very much enjoy the fact that however undiginified the position, a bridesmaid’s dress vastly improves the final photo…)
