Bells are Ringing

My feelings about weddings: I won’t take offense if I don’t get an invitation, you oughtn’t take offense if I don’t attend. Are we square? Good.

I’ll still send you a gift, though.

This came off the needles with no memorable mishaps. This not to say no mistakes were made. Experience does not  preclude one from making mistakes. But all those mistakes give you practice in how to fix them which is the real prize. Letting stitches drop to fix a mistake in lacework 4 rows down is a much greater achievement than knitting it right in the first place.IMG_2747.jpg

I like to knit lace. I like to knit lace things for brides. Each time I tell them that I do not presume to dress them, and nobody should have any say in how a bride (or anybody else) dresses on her special day (or any other). It’s an object in honor of the day and not necessarily intended for use on the day. I don’t know why this makes sense in my head, it certainly doesn’t as I type it out. Oh, well, I guess it’s possible I’ve been giving weird unwelcome gifts to brides for the last 10 years. Sorry, bride-friends!
