It Was Worth all the Cursing

Here is the bride, Sara, wearing Ethereal Grace.  I'm glad I didn't knit it any longer than I did.  (Well, I ran out of time, OK?)  Here are daughters 1 and 2 being unbearably cute as flower girls.  

This was a special wedding.  Sara was my flower girl at my first wedding in 1986.  I gave her a pearl pendant with a small diamond to wear at the wedding.  She gave my daughters, who were her flower girls, almost identical necklaces.  

Dad was watching -- the weather was perfect.  He would have been so proud.  It was a good day and a tough day at the same time.  I can say that I am proud of the work I did. 

My sister and brother in law should be more than proud of the work they did. Sara is an amazing young woman.

C'est Fini!

The wedding is tomorrow.  It finished blocking last night.  It is a version of Ethereal Grace by Anastasiaknits.  Knit in Creamy from Kollage yarns.  Size 5 Addi Turbo Lace.  15 inches wide by about 66 inches long.  (I didn't make it as big as the pattern called for.)  I would have done the knitted on picot edging if I had time.
