It's Like Driving to Massachusetts ...
Today's knitting content: I am about 2/3 finished my third wedding garter. This one is actually staying in Canada! The first two I knit went to friends in Massachusetts; Raenette and her husband John got married last September, and my friend Stephen Mougin married in February this year. I'll be adding a special post for Stephen's wedding, as soon as he sends me pictures. The current garter is going to be worn this August, on my stepmother's granddaughter's wedding day. I won't be going to the wedding, but I'm sure my dad will get some great pics. Ivory silk thread (purchased at The Silk Tree on Granville Island, Vancouver), and decorated with fresh water pearls. It will be gorgeous!
Stephen Mougin is currently playing with the Sam Bush Band, and is going to Alaska in November (brrrrrrr). I was hoping he and his new wife could make a slight detour to BC, because Dorne and I will be moved there by that time. Maybe if they're flying from Seattle to Alaska ... hmmmm ... perhaps I can bribe Stephen with some of my Alfredo sauce and a great feed of linguine! I'd love to see them both, and being back in my four bedroom house, there will be plenty of room.
So stay tuned for updates and additions to my blog. After the wedding garter, I'll be delving into the world of ordinary, non-lace knitting ... IMAGINE THAT! A vest crawling with beetles for my stepmom's youngest daughter in Victoria. She owns The Bug Zoo (I'll get a link in here as soon as I figure out how to do it!) and loves to wear buggy things. This vest will do the trick!
