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:
Cat Bordhi
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (Yarn Harlot)
Tina Newton
Anne Hanson
Meg Swansen
Jess (from Ravelry)
Mary-Heather (from Ravelry)
Chrissy Gardiner
Barbara Walker
Cookie A
Melissa Morgan-Oakes
Lucy Neatby
Anne Berk
The Sanguine Gryphon
Sheri from The Loopy Ewe
Jasmin from Knitmore Girls
Gigi from Knitmore Girls
Glenna C

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.

Oh my God, what a list! I am humbled to be on it, surely my name deserves wee tiny font compared to the likes of Barbara and Meg and Cat.

Super awesome project, Meg.

What a wonderful experience for you! I am in awe of your knitting after not even one year and wish I could have been at SS and knit a few stitches on your veil thinking good wishes all the while for your married life!!!

Congratulations on being engaged!!!
