Thank you so much for all your nice wishes on my engagement – it really made me feel special!
We’re trying to iron out details on a date. This mostly involves finding a close catholic church that won’t charge a bajillion dollars to rent. Yes, I work for the church, but I don’t want the wedding at my church because it’s too far out (a good thirty minutes from the Highlands and impossible for out of town guests I think.) Hopefully we’ll find somewhere soon!
I’ve decided that I want to wear a suit with a little hat and veil… sort of like this or this. I could also go with a simple knee length sheath and knit a little lacy shrug. Either way. I just know that I am not at all a big poofy dress sort of person, especially because I practically work weddings for a living (so I want mine to be different!) I’m thinking a sort of 1940s or 50s vibe, including hiring some of my friends who have a jazz band to play the reception. Yes, prepare for all the wedding talk here!
In knitting news, I worked for a solid 3 hours on the Not so Shrunken cardi last night, and I’ve finished the body and one sleeve.
Sorry for the sucky picture, but I simply am incapable of taking pictures of myself. I lengthened the sleeve by 2 inches because I have super long arms, so they worked out about the same as the called for length. The raglan depth is probably a bit long (it called for 9.5″, but I should have stopped at 9 or even 8.5″.) The needle is still on the bottom because I have lots more yarn and was considering lengthening the cardi, but I decided that since I like cropped sweaters it wouldn’t be worth the work for 6 more inches. So… one more sleeve and the button bands to go! This has been a super quick knit, and I don’t even feel as though I’ve been slaving away on it. The yarn for my Jess hasn’t arrived yet, I promise to sew it together when it arrives!
That’s all for now!
