  • The Border

    There is no remedy for love but to love more.
    -Henry David Thoreau

    This is the photo you've all been waiting for. (Even if it's a bad night photo.)Meet the border of the Chuppah. It's perfect. Just perfect. I know I can't show you too much yet (or how much work it takes to get it all set up and pick up all 220 stitches from the provisional cast-on), but rest assured that it is the absolute perfect complement to the center pattern. The perfect width (8 inches), the perfect bordering, the perfect diamond-ness, the perfect scale, the perfect edge. Want a close-up? Of course you do. Want more details? It's one of the borders from the wide border chapter from Victorian Lace Today. I'm blanking on the name. It's the prettiest one, though, rest assured.

    You may remember when I was trying to come up with my own set of border patterns for the Chuppah . . . and they were all just not exactly right. Then I saw this book. And the rest, as they say, is history. Or history in the making, at least.

    Looks great! I noticed a knitted chuppah in the summer interweave preview - perhaps you're ahead of the trend!

    Hello there! You must be Mum's "navy doctor" friend I've heard so much about. I'm so glad you stopped by my site- I'd been meaning to visit yours, but I've been so busy it just hasn't happened yet :-)

    The chuppah is gorgeous... I wish I could knit lace like that! Maybe someday!
