Twenty-Third: Wedding Bells and Bugs from Hell

This week is off to a fun start. The weekend was taken up almost entirely by festivities surrounding my friends Mike & Denise's wedding in Peachtree City. It was a really beautiful ceremony, and the reception was incredibly fun. Darold and I danced our little hearts out, and were so honored to be included in the bride & groom's small guest list. Mike & Denise are really wonderful people, the kind who could ask you for anything and you'd do whatever you could to help them out. I wish them the happiest of marriages. Of course, the wedding weekend meant I barely knit a stitch, since that's one of a very few places that I can think of where knitting is entirely inappropriate.

In other news, I received a package from Holly that she so graciously sent me for winning her most recent de-stashing contest. My digital camera is currently out of commission, but she sent some beautiful, ice blue, lace weight, Super Kydd mohair from elann.com that I'm so excited to try! I've decided to make a beautiful shawl out of it. With all the wedding fever from this weekend, I got it into my head that one day, the shawl I make might end up being my "something blue!" I'm nowhere near there, yet, though. :) The package also included a soothing, scented sachet and some really cool fabric pieces that I'm using to work on a quilt (well, probably more like a lap-blankie) for my year-old nephew Andrew. Black and white is great for developing a baby's vision, and his daddy's a Georgia Bulldogs fan, so I'm sure all of the black, white, and pops of red in the fabric will be much appreciated. I'll try to post a picture when I get done with it, though who knows when that will be?

I'm still working on my spring swap package! I've got 99% of it done, and I can't wait to share it all with you. See you soon!

Yay! Your package finally arrived (I say "finally" because it took me forever to get it in the post!) BTW, I made the sachet and it has cedar and lavender in it--good for keeping moths grumpy and at bay.

You should be getting another package in the mail in a few days! Your Longing for Spring Swap went out this morning! I hope you enjoy all the fun goodies I had a blast picking out for you!

The wedding sounds great! And I can't wait to see the new yarn -- ice-blue laceweight sounds absolutely lovely. What pattern are you thinking of knitting? (I'm all for vicarious knitting pleasure...)
