Secrets, secrets...

Written on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010:

So I've been working on a couple of secret projects. I realize that I haven't posted in over a month but the big reveal has come!

My brother and his fiance are getting married Nov. 12, 2010. I've been busy working on a wedding shawl and a garter set for my soon-to-be sister-in-law. Her bridal shower is being held on Sunday and I will finally be able to give them to her.

I knit Annis in Ivory Handmaiden Sea Silk. I think that it turned out lovely. Her dress is ivory so I thought that this colorway would really compliment the warmer tones in her dress.

I also made her a garter set. They are planning on doing the traditional garter toss at the reception so I made 2 garters.
The garter with the blue ribbon is for Sam to wear on her wedding day-- it can be her "something blue" and the garter with the eggplant ribbon (our bridesmaid dresses are eggplant so I was just following the theme) is for the garter toss. They both have clear Swarvoski crystals sewn onto the bows. I made Sam's garter to Sam's specific measurements and the eggplant garter slightly larger-- who knows whose leg it will end up on!

The gifts are all packed up and ready for my trip to NY tomorrow. I hope she loves them!
