I knit and crochet. My mom is amazing with a hook and will be crocheting my garter, but there’s just no way I’ll be willing to toss that at the wedding. I’m thinking about doing some lace weight flowers to add to my boquet. Most of my flowers I’m making from book pages, thought that light airy crocheted flowers would lighten thing up a bit.

Is everyone here on Ravalry? Putting together a group on there for motivation wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Me me me! I’m a beginning knitter, but I’m very proficient with crochet. I didn’t make anything for my wedding but I’ll bet a hankerchief might be nice! You could also maybe do something to wrap around your bouquet, or cozies/wraps for your centerpieces if you’re using vases.

I wanted to knit some kind of doilies to put under the centerpieces but it never happened. I have seen some really cool yarn bouquets. Are any of you guys on ravelry? I am “thelegalbeagle” on there.

A friend of mine knitted her favors, little wedding bells for each person in white yarn with silver accents. It was really cute, and I have to say I kept mine around longer than I’ve kept a lot of favors… which is why I didn’t bother with favors myself.

I knit. I have a pattern for a garter and I recently found and bought the yarn for that. I am going to make it in cobweb/lace weight purple.
I am getting married in Feb so am considering knitting a bolero to wear. I am only concerned that my dress is lace so I may not want a lace knit over that. There are a couple stockinette patterns I have book marked. Worst case is I knit them and go with something else, oh well I can still use them.
I love the idea of knitting the corsages, then they can pin them on something else in the future. I think I will do that for sure, thanks!!

@MexiPino: Knitter here! I’m thinking about knitting a shawl.

I’m a knitter, too! I can’t believe I didn’t see this thread 2 months ago… This info is old news for @MexiPino: , because she commented on my thread about it already, but I’ll share the info to my other fellow knitters! 🙂
I’m making a “wedding ring shawl” of sorts for the wedding (aka a shawl fine enough to pull completely through a wedding, or any, ring). Depending on how it turns out, and depending on what dress I choose, it will either just be for my shoulders OR it will be my veil. I’m using this pattern.
I’m pretty pale and plan on purchasing an ivory dress, so I’m knitting this in a tiny, but strong, silk/cashmere/merino wool natural colored cobweb weight yarn

I am knitting my girls shrugs and adding these crochet belts that will be embroidered with swarovski’s and pearls.
