31  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lace Sweater on: March 20, 2006 06:57:03 AM
A couple of weeks ago, I downloaded a bunch of old Irish Lace books and leaflets off of the Antique Pattern Library website, but the book part doesn't seem to be there anymore, it may just be a temporary thing, so here's the link anyways: http://www.antiquepatterns.dreamhosters.com/
32  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: ideas for mother's day shawl? on: March 19, 2006 09:53:13 AM
I was asking about beginner lace patterns on another thread, I want to make shawls for my bridesmaids to wear this summer.
Someone suggested feather and fan lace as an easy pattern to master, and kiwimum posted a bunch of links.
The thread is here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84958.msg803746#msg803746
33  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: help for the girl who was "never getting married" ? on: March 18, 2006 06:50:20 PM
Your city hall should probably have names of people who are licensed to officiate, and most of them will do civil ceremonies. It's also easy to 'ordain' a well-spoken friend or family member to have them do it. My fiance really wants his dad to officiate.

I always knew I wanted to get married, but I never really thought about the wedding. When I started planning, so many things didn't make any sense to me.
Before you do anything else, you should write down the things you want (like cheesecake) those will be the important things to make your day really special. Things like- where you want the wedding, how many people  you want there, what time of day you picture it at. Everyone always says it's the bride's day, you do what she wants, but you should get your fiance to write down what he pictures, too, and work together to get what you want together.
Anything you feel really strongly about, you should try and do (or not do). If you don't really care about it, but you find that your parents do, well, sometimes it is easier to pick your battles.
I think something else that helped me a lot was getting a couple of bridal magazines that appealed to me, and looking through them, and marking the items that I liked. It helps to give an idea of what you want it to look like.
Since all you really need are a license, and officiant and two witnesses, everything else is like icing on the cake.

My first dpn project was Knitty's Voodoo Armwarmers, since I have yet to learn how to increase and decrease. It's basically a ribbed tube with button holes. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTvoodoo.html

Thanks for the lace information. I think I may start by making a feather and fan scarf for myself, and thenn check out some leafy lace patterns like branching out, I love the leafy lace.
I was looking at Eunny's blog, and there is a ton of information on there! I'm taking a break from it to allow it all to sink in.
kiwimum - thanks for the tip on how to find a simple lace pattern, I'll definitely be taking that into account. I never would have thought to look for something like that, or even have noticed that some patterns had simple rows, and some didn't.

I also love the colour of your scarf. Very nice.

I really, really want to make some lace wraps for my wedding this summer, and there seem to be so many beautiful patterns, but I've never knit lace before.
Could you recommend some easy to learn lace patterns?  Could you recommend some really informative lace books? Where do you like to buy your lace yarn from?
