A few weeks ago, my friends, Alex & Joe, went all out and got married! It was a bit sudden, sorta shot-gun style, wedding-at-the-courthouse, and all hands were on deck. I offered Alex any help she might require, and replied, "Hand knits, plz?"
I was happy to oblige, and she requested this teal-blue version of Something Lacey by Vera Sanon. It's knit with Knit Picks Shine Worsted in Reef.
It turned out seriously adorable!
After this request, Alex came to me the week before the wedding and requested some mustache cake-toppers. I used my mustache brooch pattern, and made a simple, but cute, blue and pink cake topper. Lots of cute photos followed:
Sometimes crafting for other can be tedious, but I have to say, it's my favorite way to contribute to a wedding. Having something I've made be part of the party's ensemble, or making cake toppers, is pretty special. And low-stress, usually - my part is over before the fun begins!
