I’ve been waiting to post about this finished project for a while because it was a gift, well last weekend it was gifted, so now I can share.
It all started with a friend’s Facebook post a couple months ago ~
Are you sitting down? I’ll wait until you take a seat…ready???? I’M ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED!! Scotty proposed to me over the weekend in Vegas!!!!!! I am the happiest woman in the world!! Bonus = Jori is very happy too!! I love you Scott and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you!!
And then just a couple days later ~
Just ordered my wedding dress!!! :):):):):)
I knew I had to knit her something and when I saw the dress she was going to wear, I knew it would be a shawl.
I had just bought this scrumptious red/pink/purple bamboo yarn a week or two before and knew it would be perfect. It was Blue Heron Bamboo Lace.
I began to knit ~ Abrazo
by Susanna IC, I love her designs, I’ve made Annis
a couple times and really like them. I did add 2 more repeats just to make it a little wider and deeper, since the depth comes from short rows for the inside of the crescent.
The yarn was wonderful to work with, and knowing my friend, I had to add beads. She has such a sparkly, vibrant personality.
I was able to knit it up pretty quickly. Once you get through the lace section of 26 rows, it’s just smooth sailing short rows in stockinette.
My mom, sisters and I met up with our friend and her daughter last weekend. It was a wonderful visit, lots of laughter as always when we are with her.
I wish her, her daughter and her husband to be a wonderful wedding in Hawaii and a marvelous life together!!
I hope everyone has a good week, see you all next week…
