I’m knitting/crocheting 100 scarves for our favors. Lucily my sisters are pitching in! We’re up to about 65.

I knit, but I’m not doing anything for the wedding (too much pressure!). But, if you’re on Ravelry, there are a lot of wedding shawls and such on there – they all look really pretty!

@MissHelen: oh my god how are you doing that many?  the yarn alone must cost quite a penny.  that’s very impressive.

I am a knitting bee!

And I have projects planned for the wedding. And they’re not done. AAAAAND I’m getting married in like, 15 days! Yikes! Right now I’m hoping to have everything done in time – these are bridesmaid gifts though, they’re not going to be worn down the aisle, so if things don’t get done, no one will miss them!

At the very least, my MOH/sister’s shawl will be done. It’s amazing and I want to knit myself one (post wedding, obvi). I don’t have a picture of it (or anything else I’ve finished, they’re unblocked) but here’s what I’m making for the sis:

if I had time, I’d make myself this:

Are you on ravelry? I have the same username there, and I’ll be sure to post pics when I’m done so you could see 🙂

I used to knit. I just don’t really get the motivation to do it anymore. I once saw photos of a cake topper that the bride had knit to look like herself and her groom. They were adorable.

Ravelry=DO IT 

It’s super handy – plus I had to bail on one of my patterns because it was too time-consuming, and I found the alternates on Ravelry 🙂 Good luck!

I used to. I wasn’t THAT good but I would make dish cloths and scarves.

@Ms.Meowerson: Sale at the fabric store! I got more than I’ll need for about $190.

I knit! I’m considering knitting Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts but I haven’t decided yet.

For my bridal showers I made set of dishclothes from each guest. 3 for each person, and each dishcloth had a different pattern.
