  • Making Progress

    I chose my wife, as she did her wedding gown,
    for qualities that would wear well.
    -Oliver Goldsmith

    Ever notice how the blog and real (knitting) life don't always have a 1:1 correspondence? The vast majority of my knitting time has been going towards The Chuppah, and yet I haven't posted much about it recently. (Last progress photo here.) And so I present great progress: I had all sorts of grand plans to get home and get a nice daylight photo today, but you know how those best laid plans can go . . . To appease those who can't see much above, here's an (unblocked) close-up: The progress portrayed above is a little more than half of the center section. That would be 6' wide by 3' long, for those of you keeping track, and represents about 1/3 of the overall knitting. Right on schedule. And you know how much I love schedules!

    Oh, Theresa- you are a GOOD friend to be so diligently knitting! I'm sure it will become a family heirloom.

    Now, the question is when are you going to make yourself one??? heh heh heh.

    To say that it is beautiful seems like such an understatement of fact. It really is quite lovely and you are so generous. As much as I can not wait to see the finished product, I am sure you are probably looking forward to the end a little more!

    I'm rather jealous of the friend who is receiving the chuppah. For my wedding, we just used a store-bought lace tablecloth. It worked, and it was pretty, but still, not as pretty as the one you're making!

    Speaking as one of the two persons who will be getting married under said chuppah, I approve. Keep up the fine work.

    Wow, you're really coming along! It looks phenomenal. I hope it doesn't upstage the bride! (Which of course, it won't. It'll just enhance her.)
