For a beautiful wedding

November 04 2011 – thisisknit

Last March, we had the opportunity to admire a wonderful piece of knitted lace: the wedding lace that wittyknitty had made for her extremely lucky friend, C. Well, wittyknitty's done it again. She dropped in to the shop a couple of weeks ago to show us this wedding shawl, which she had just finished knitting for C's sister, M. This time, Brigit Freyer's Flamenco shawl was the starting point. When it came to the border, though, she added an even more elaborate border, adapted from Elizabeth Freeman's Aeolian pattern: Usually, the border of a shawl goes around the two shorter sides, leaving the hypotenuse plain. Not in this case: here the Aeolian border continues along the neckline, entirely enclosing the body of the shawl in wonderful Estonian lace: What's more, the border glitters with the loveliest copper-coloured glass beads, so it sparkles in the light - the perfect contrast with the natural colour of the Dublin Dye Company alpaca laceweight: You can read more about wittyknitty's modifications on her project page. It's an honour to be able to show you this beautiful object and to wish C and her new husband every happiness in the years to come. This is another heirloom piece, to be cherished by generations.

    This is wonderful and would you mind if I used your pattern for my daughter who is getting married in March 2013. She is anartist herself and adores anything even resembling lace. Patricia CB
