Knot Tying 101; Or, How Wedding Planning Comes Along

...wherein I discuss my upcoming wedding, and this time it's the shower!...

Shower - on blog

This past Sunday was a lovely day, heralding the soon-to-be-season; the sun shone happily, my birds squawked noisily, and my sister saw the culmination of her months-long efforts in the beautiful bridal shower she arranged for me.

Needless to say, it was knitting-themed.

The above photo montage gives you a glimpse into the day, including the yarn-basket centrepieces she created, the knit-fabric invites she handmade, the awesomeness of my great knitting buds, and the gloriousness of MacGyvering a swift from the back of a chair.

Yes, it was a knitter's shower extraordinaire!

ETA:
The wee white boxes were the favours - 2 Lindt chocolates.
There weren't any knitting games, though my sister played with the idea. Unfortunately, not everyone who attended was a knitter ;)
(though, I did get a couple of requests from some wee ones to teach them how to knit!)

Thanks for the compliments on the dress - I can't wait to wear it again.

Details! We want details! Did knitting happen? And what was in to intriguing little white boxes??? What was the food and drink? Did anyone make knitting-themes cupcakes or other knitty items?

Congratulations on the beautiful shower!!
