I’m a knitter bee, too! I also want to figure out something to knit. My wedding is in the summer, so I don’t see myself knitting anything wearable. If I end up doing something, it will probably be doilies to go under centerpieces. I trialed one and it didn’t take long at all but I used worsted weight yarn just to see how it would come out. It was actually a tablecloth pattern I got from Ravelry, but I modified it to make it a WHOLE lot smaller.

I knit too! My grandmother taught me. I don’t know if I’m going to knit anything for the wedding, though.  I did loan my MOH a small blue knitted square that my grandmother had done that we pinned on the inside of her wedding dress as her something old, borrowed, and blue.

@MexiPino:  Yeah, that’s a good idea to do something in your mom and/or grandmother’s memory. I’m trying to think of something to do in my grandmother’s memory. I do have an embroidered handkerchief that was hers, and I may ask my mom what else she has of my grandmother’s that I can work into my wedding. Do you have any clothing (wedding dress?) or handkerchiefs or anything of your mom or grandmother’s that you can wrap the stems of your bouquet in?

@MexiPino:  Or what about a knit garter?

I’m a knitter! I’m going to make a very light, lacy shawl for myself. I’m getting married in the summer, but i’m going to want a little something to throw over my shoulders as it gets chilly, since we’ll be outside. Here’s a link to the pattern. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/holbrook-shawl

I’m also planning on knitting flower corsages for the moms/grandmas. I’ll make them out of lightweight silk or cotton yarn, and knit crystals in, so hopefully it won’t look too wintery. I love the idea of them having something to keep after the wedding and attach to a coat or handbag.

@MexiPino:  Oh, the blue heart idea is perfect! I agree about the purse though, it might be awkward.. I mean, you could carry it in to the reception but I’m not sure about walking down the aisle with it. But it’s hard not to include it somehow given its history!

@MojitoMeg:  That shawl pattern is beautiful! And the flower corsages are a great idea too.

@sah612:  i love the pattern so much! I’ve been wanting to make a shawl for a long time, but it’s such a big expensive project, and I wasn’t sure I would really wear it, so I couldn’t justify it. But the wedding gives me a perfect excuse!

@MexiPino:  I like all those patterns, especially the fiori. It took me a long time to narrow down my options! I’m still looking for yarn. I want laceweight, ivory, and it has to have some silk. I want the sheen and that fluid drape.

I’ve been working on other tuff, but I really need to get going! I’m kind of slow, and I always screw up and have to rip the whole thing out at least once per project, so I need all the time I can get.

Those shawl patterns are soooo stunning! I’m justing learning to knit and am working on my first lace scarf…but some day I will do a shawl!
