I made it through a month of posting every weekday. Whew! The rules for NaBloPoMo said we had to post every single day, but I went ahead and took the weekends off. I'm living on the edge. Ha!
I don't think I like posting every day. Two times a week feels a little better somehow. It takes away some pressure, but more importantly, it gives me time to think about things and hopefully create a post that is interesting to you. It seems like the past month has been lots of photos and not much thoughtful content. I'd like it to be a happy medium. A knitter can't live on yarn porn (and puppies) alone.
The latest issue of Interweave Knits Accessories will be hitting the newsstands next week. December 6th I think. Included is a shawl that our good friend Miriam Felton designed called Trousseau.
Pretty gorgeous, don't you agree?
Amanda, the office manager here, wore this shawl at her wedding. She's a little unconventional and wore a green gown. Her big day is featured in the magazine.
Amanda, Ysolda and Miriam. Knitterati* at its finest.
Most of us will get married in a traditional white dress, but I like the idea of having an accessory that pops. Whether it's the flowers or a shawl or colored shoes peeking out from under them hem, why not get a little flirty with it?
*Amended to add: Annie Modesitt designed the dress. How could I have been so forgetful!?
**The shawl is knit in 4ns Blackberry Helen's Lace. Where is my brain today?
