Wedding Knits!

My guy and I are getting married!!

After the initial shock and the first wave of planning passed, I had the impulse to start *knitting* things for this wedding. We’re getting married in October, so I instantly had visions of autumn-colored banners, leaves everywhere, and a knit bouquet… but about halfway through the 4th leaf I realized that if I was going to make this happen, I would need some *help*!

One of the things I love most about the Ravelry community, though, is that I barely had time to ask for help before I had knitters jumping out of their seats volunteering to help me out! So great!

To my wonderful knitters who want to help me with this massive undertaking, you don’t *have* to use the patterns here! All I ask is that you follow three simple guidelines:

  • Yarn used for bunting triangles should be wool if possible, or a nice-feeling wool blend. These will be sewn together into a blanket after the wedding! (Leaves can be any fiber.)
  • Bunting triangles, owl puffs, leaves, and “others” should be either natural/undyed or autumnal. Solid, semi-solid, or striped yarns are totally fine, just stick to the orange/brown/red/whatever scheme please.
  • Flowers should be natural/undyed, yellow, orange, or red.

I need to have enough time to assemble these bits and pieces into their finished forms so please, if you could, try and ship no later than September 13th. That’s a month before the wedding, so I *think* that should give me enough time… Whenever you’re ready to ship, contact me at through.the.looking@gmail.com or via Ravelry (my username is ThroughTheLooking) and I’ll send you my address.

Now, the patterns…

    Thank you for the pattern, I was at Yarndale this weekend and realised that making wedding bunting was a great idea and a good way of celebrating relatives no longer with us who were always knitting but just needed a pattern, so thank you.
