The Adventures of a Veil at Sock Summit
Yes, I am the 'veil girl' from Sock Summit and as promised, here is a post about who knit on my wedding veil.
I want to preface this by thanking everyone who agreed to knit on it and to say that everyone was completely awesome about it. I was visibly shaking the first few times I asked people but everyone was so nice, I got less and less nervous. I definitely trembled talking to Barbara Walker though!
The list is:
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (Yarn Harlot)
Jess (from Ravelry)
Mary-Heather (from Ravelry)
The Sanguine Gryphon
Sheri from The Loopy Ewe
Jasmin from Knitmore Girls
Gigi from Knitmore Girls
The photos can be found on flickr here. I got pictures of most but not all of the veil knitters.
This whole experience was by far my favourite memory of Sock Summit. My classes were awesome. I had fun at the events. I love my new yarn. But all those memories can be duplicated in some way. I'll never get to do this again (particularly since this is definitely the only veil I'm ever going to knit and this is the last plain knit round in the pattern).
I love that people have been talking about it. Stay tuned for more veil updates and eventually a finished object picture.
