I don't know about you but for me when I think of a couple embarking down the path of marriage I get all warm and fuzzy inside. I remember my own wedding and how Jimmy and I began our life together. :-)
Our friend's Sarah and Jim are to wed next June. I offered to knit a shawl/stole for Sarah to wear on her wedding day. It was funny because the very first pattern I showed her, as an example and starting point, she fell for. I am still amazed she didn't want to look any further. What pattern captured her you say?
It is the Muir by Rosemary Hill and was featured in the Fall 2007 Knitty. Here it is pictured below:
Tuesday evening Sarah and I went to a LYS and where she picked out a beautiful hank of Claudia Hand Painted Silk yarn in a very very soft gray. This yarn is amazingly soft and the shine! Very yummy! Yesterday I cast on the 125 stitches and have knit about 10 rows. Below are a couple photos from day one!
I really need to remember to ask Santa for a better camera for Christmas. My camera doesn't capture the beauty of these stitches.
