So, I’m getting married. Soon. After dating the love of my life for two years, we are ready to merge our families into one, and we couldn’t be happier. We’re doing this thing quick – in a small family ceremony on the beach at the beginning of August. As you can guess, I’m doing a fair amount of reading about weddings, and I have to say, it’s pretty fun.The project I’m working on is the beginning of the Lintilla shawl, which will be a gift for a special someone. It’s my first time creating ruffles with wraps and turns, and with picking up wrapped stitches. It’s slow going, but I’ve found this video on wraps and turns helpful, and this one on picked up the wrapped stitches. I’ve ripped out the body pattern a few times, and I’m still not confident I’ve got it, but I feel like I’m getting close!
