…is not only someone who is always ready with the bail fund, it’s someone who will knit a wedding shawl for you.

Wedding Shawl - Blocked

Not once, but twice.

Because you RILLY want a big-arsed lace shawl as a veil.

Then, if your friend is as awesome as my friend, they will worry that it isn’t big enough.

Wedding Shawl - Blocked

Until you finally get off your lazy butt and block it.

…and it takes up most of your living room floor.

Then you unpin it, hold it up and realize…

Wedding Shawl - Blocked

That seven feet wide is plenty big enough.  ;o)

Cookie, you are a knitting goddess.  I will cherish this shawl forever and it will be a wonderful ‘Cookie Hug’ on my wedding day.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. xoxo  (I’d offer you my first born as thanks but I’m pretty sure you don’t want her… ;op )

Project Details:

Pattern: Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today

Yarn: Zephyr Lace in Vanilla

Other Details: You’re going to have to check with the knitting goddess on that one, I’m not sure on needle size but I think knitting time was like 20 minutes.  ;op

On an important and completely unrelated note – Happy Birthday, Mom!
