Although I had to work this weekend, I carved out some time to play with the GGH Soft Kid I mentioned last week. On my fat, size 15 bamboos, I whipped out the Spiderweb Capelet from SnB Nation. It's a fairly easy pattern and works up quickly, but be sure to check the errata!
The pattern calls for crocheted ties with little pompoms ends as the front fastener, but I think I'm going to try and find something a little different to fancy it up a bit -- maybe some silk ribbon? Not sure,... And if you haven't figured it out yet, I whipped this up in hopes that I may be able to wear it with my wedding dress. I ordered a silk chiffon stole that matches my dress, but I thought this might work as a good alternative sometime later in the evening.
And thanks SO MUCH for everyone's feedback on the china! I really love them both -- I think I'll have to drag the guy to the store again to make the final final decision. I'll let you know which way we end up going, though!
The wedding goal this week is to get the invites finalized. I really wanted to get letterpress invites, but am reconsidering due to the expense ($14 per piece). So we went down to the stationers this weekend and found some nice Crane's invites ($8 per piece), and also came across some interesting invites at Invitesite ($3 per piece) but I'm not sure if I have the bandwidth right now to print and assemble all our invitations myself. The guy is really pushing for the Crane's invitations, he seem the think the price isn't *that* bad (!!), but I'm having a hard time swallowing the cost.
Wedding crap = highway robbery. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
