So, the countdown is on. Three more sleeps until I have a husband. Holy smokes.
With only three days to go, I am under the illusion (more like delusion?) that I am going to finish knitting a bolero out of some beautiful mohair to keep my shoulders warm on what I imagine will be a sunny, but chilly November afternoon. I don't like the idea of being covered in goosebumps in all of my photos! So a bolero should solve that issue.
I only have a sleeve and a half left to go... and then I need to sew it up.
But I can do it- right? Because I don't really have anything else going on over the next few days. (HA!)
It's funny how my wedding is all of a sudden starting to feel like Christmas Eve. You know when the clock continues to tick as you stare down the barrel of all those knitting deadlines you've set for yourself? You've been busy driving across Hell's half acre to get Uncle Donny the perfect tie for under the tree or a box of the best truffles in town. You've been up until the wee hours perfecting this year's batch of Christmas cookies, or getting the piping perfect on your gingerbread house... and somehow (don't ask me how!), the knitting gets put on the back burner.
The only difference here is... an "IOU a knitted bolero for your wedding" doesn't photograph too well.
Thank heavens I at least had the foresight to whip off a wedding themed cowl to keep me cozy.

Is it the "Kate-Middleton-on-her-wedding-day" look that I was going for?
But then again, I'm pretty sure that it was ME who my man proposed to six months ago...
Not that Kate Middleton character.
Stay warm friends. ♥
