endearing is knitting for weddings (and babies!). i've made a shawl for my dress, this is 'flying home' again. the moment the first 'flying home' was cast off, this one began. i think the first time i've made a pattern twice in a row. as soon as it was completed, this morning at a cafe with a friend, i gently pinned it out (at home) gave it a light mist with water and three hours later it was dry. well, almost... :) patience not being my virtue today, i couldn't wait to try it on, see how it went with everything. i think i'll try to braid my hair, something like this maybe:
the shawl was made with lace weight silk mohair from lion brand lb collection, in the colorway wisp. so pretty, so soft, it knit up beautifully, i'm glad to have tried it. this shawl weighs less than a feather, less than air! yet so warm too! it will be good for travel i think (ten more days, eeps!) taking very little space in my carry on.
