Well if getting engaged is code for “Tell me ALL you wedding day plans right now!” then I am in in full engagement mode (haha).Among the many questions I have been asked is, ” So what are you knitting for your wedding?” To be honest, I am having some reservations about making things for my wedding day [insert gasp here]. Let explain the reasons why not. 1) I am mostly likely getting married in the summer in the Northeast USA. Therefore, it will be hot. So no shawls, sweaters, or caplets needed. 2) If I have to knit several items (i.e., gifts) I may lose the desire to complete them all with all the other things going on. 3) As for a whole wedding gown: I don’t have the patience to knit or crochet a wedding gown. Knowing myself, if there is one mistake ( no matter how small) I will be fixated on it. it is a lot of pressure to knit a garment that will be photographed and remembered by everyone I know. However, I can’t help but admiring these dresses though.
Well I logged into Ravelry this morning. Guess what some of the featured items were….Wedding Knits. Is this a sign that I should change my mind? A little research later and I discovered the possibilities are endless. There are everything from knit bouquets, to veils, to purses… *sigh* A girl can get overwhelmed with all potential knitting projects. Good thing I have a year and a half to make a decision. 🙂
Has anyone knitted and/or crocheted items for their wedding day?
