I'm so glad Nurhanne dropped by and solved the mystery!
(This is the first test-knit of what was to become the garter pattern. Canadian penny is the same size as a US penny.)

Thanks for visiting, Nurhanne! Drop by again soon!
Update: September 16, 2007
With all the interest shown in my knitted wedding garters, I am offering to knit them for anyone who wishes to order one. I will, of course, be charging a fee, which will vary depending on thread (silk, cotton, linen) and embellishments (pearls, ribbon, etc.)
