Congrats to Alessandro and Francesca!

Who would have ever believed that ...
-I would find the right dress, (and that it was made of sheer bright silk and yet still managed to hide all my lumps and bumps),
- would mangae to walk on high heels
- I wouldn't bite my nails for two weeks
- find a gold designer clutch bag on sale in an outlet the day before
-the weather would be just perfect.

Yet I did and it was...




Such a lovely reception.













such a lovely young couple

and such a huge cake













And being a perfectionist I even got hold of the right shade of wool to knit Tidal Streams in Easyknit skinny semi solid plum jam yarn.http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tidal-streams

As Mom would say, "Sue, you clean up well!"

What kind/type of cake did they have? In the US, we have tiered cakes, normally. (A friends whose mom made WONDERFUL pies had pies for her wedding cake . . . all different flavors and fillings made the week of the by the bride and her mom. Her wedding gift to me was a home made pie . . . shawl with a gorgeous plate to use after.

WOW . . did I go off on a rant!

LOVE the shawl too!

Aren't you a fancy-looking lot, you three! :)

The colour of your shawl really does go perfectly with the dress.
