1  DIY wedding 7-11-09 in Weddings and Bridal Showers by hst on: September 12, 2009 01:44:58 PM
I got married on 7-11.  We did it pretty cheap and cool (I think).  The wedding was on a ferry boat, the theme was a pic-nic.  We had a pig roast.  The table clothes were the cheap red checkered kind, and we used yellow plates, forks, knives etc.  My MIL did the flowers, some wild, some purchased from the flower market.  I wrapped the plastic wear up and tied it with red hemp twine, and put them in a flower pot on each table.
The flowers at the "alter" were on old lobster buoys (we live in Maine).
My mom made my dress, the whole dress, pattern included was less than $25!!!!!!
the pattern: DKNY V2900
My husband made the invitations, they were amazing!  I will include in another post.
Thanks for looking!

2  cupcakes and creepy cute toppers in Weddings and Bridal Showers by hst on: August 07, 2009 04:18:44 AM
My mom crocheted the bride and groom, they are from a book called "Creepy Cute" I think.  A friend made the cupcakes, this isn't the best photo of them, but they are sunflowers.
The wedding was on a boat.

Here is mine!  This was fun and easy, and I have already worn it twice, which is 2 times more than I usually wear the sweaters I make!

Here she is!  I think I actually like this.  If I make another one though, I'll make a smaller "flower."

5  My first Aran project, baby sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by hst on: August 27, 2005 05:29:39 PM
I found the premier issue of Knit It magazine at my mom's house.  (It's a few years old)  Any way I loved "Julia's Aran Pullover" by Kristin Nicholas.  It was fun and pretty easy.  I loved the directions (written out no charts).  I used Lamb's pride in creme.  I actually finished this project a while ago, and just found the pictures on my computer.
Thanks for looking!

OK here is the rear view, which is hard to take of yourself, and I was to embarrased to ask someone to do it for me.  I used 100% Cotton Reynolds Saucy, and it is quite stiff, which may be good for this...
Sorry I couldn't get a closer view, but hopefully you can see that it isn't too scary (I hope not at least).

7  wave skirt from spring 05 IK in Knitting: Completed Projects by hst on: July 21, 2005 02:33:18 PM
This is my firt post, so I hope all goes well!  I used Reynolds worsted weight "Saucy" and knit the size small.  I left out the edging (because I just wanted to be finished!) and crocheted around the bottom to keep it straight.
When I finished it was way to tight and short, but a little blocking went a long way.
Thanks for looking.
