Masterpiece: Alicia's Wedding Shawl

When my friend and podcasting co-host announced that she was engaged, I immediately told her I was knitting her wedding shawl.  We worked together over the course of a couple months to figure out what yarn and pattern she wanted. Originally we picked a different pattern but it just wasn't working out so we went back to the drawing board and I could not be happier with how this turned out!

Pattern: Aphrodite by Sivia Harding
Yarn: Juniper Moon Farm Findley
Cast on: February 8th, 2014
Finished: April 26th, 2014
Notes: This is one of those projects that is so special!  I really wanted it to be perfect!  I took my time with figuring out the pattern and once it clicked I was able to knit this relatively quickly.  There are beads in the edging that you can't really tell are there but add to the weight and helps with the drape.  So glad I was able to knit this for such a very special day!

Alicia surprised me by actually walking down the isle in the shawl!  I freaked out because I had been following the wedding through her instagram tag and I saw her walking down the isle in the shawl and was just floored!  It was so awesome and made me feel like I was there. 

For her bridesmaids, Alicia knit them beautiful Traveling Woman shawls.  This is my favorite picture of all the shawls because you can tell a Knitter was getting married!  Love this so much!
Hope you enjoyed these pictures!  Alicia was such a beautiful bride and I'm so thankful to be her friend.

Happy Knitting!
