Last weekend, the BF and I attended a lovely country wedding. It was at an old and picturesque farm in Mt. Horeb (something old). Mother Nature provided all the decorations. Well, almost all.
I was so delighted to hear that this couple was getting married and I immediately decided that I wanted to knit them something to celebrate.
I decided that this was my chance to knit The Fickle Knitter’s Golden Leaf Shawl, a new pattern I picked up just a few weeks ago (something new).
I consulted with the groom and confirmed the bride’s favorite color: red. Perfect! It was my opportunity to to use a hank of gorgeous Plucky Knitter silk/wool blend yarn given to me by my mother (something borrowed…well, sort of). I just love the name of the color: Ellen Arden (as in, Move Over Darling, the hilarious Doris Day film).
I love how this turned out. The bride loved it too. It’s just a little shoulder-topper shawl, so perfect for a cool evening after a warm autumn day.
So what did I knit for the groom? I couldn’t think of anything. The good news is, I don’t think he minded at all.
What does one knit for a groom? I’m sure this question will come up again? I need suggestions.
