The Wedding Shawl

It has begun. The wedding shawl. The wedding shawl that needs to be done in 15 days. After waffling over several patterns, I went with the Frozen Leaves pattern, but I'm using the (rav id) like2makethings variant. I almost went with the Kristen TenDyke Leaves Shawl, but decided that the leaves weren't high enough on the shawl. I still like the pattern. I still bought the pattern too... maybe when the wedding craziness is over I'll have time for it.

I'm using two skeins of Anzula Squishy in the Spruce color way. And I'm switching skeins every two rows to make sure it is blended. One skein I got was bluer than the other, but I decided that it was a blessing in disguise. I love the skeins that are more yellow, but they don't look as good against my skin.

Now the question is, can I do it? Can I have a shawl knit and blocked by the wedding even though I have absolutely no time to do it. Well, we won't know if I don't give it a go.

You can do it if you put your mind to it, and you will. Happy Valentine's Day for your first year together with Connor, Happy Birthday tomorrow, and enjoy the wedding planning!

You know, I was wondering if you were going to knit yourself something to wear at your wedding. I totally think you can do it! It'll be the calm amidst the planning storm (or maybe just another little part of the storm?) Either way, it'll be a gorgeous piece to carry from the wedding into your marriage.

That will be a beautiful shawl for a beautiful day! And I'm sure that you can get it done in time... whether or not you will be getting enough sleep, however, is another matter.
