Ok, so she's not wearing any shoes. But she does have a Sixpence Shawlette wrapped around her shoulders. This project was so much fun. The lovely bride was knitting up some Kataras for her bridesmaids and I told her I would be honored to design a wedding shawlette for her in exchange for some pictures.

We actually even had a "client" meeting. Ok, we met at Panera. And had lunch. And I showed her stitch dictionary elements I thought she might like. It was totally a professional meeting. Um, ok. It was lunch with a friend and we talked about knitting. Wait, that covers most of my lunches. Are all my meals with friends tax deductible?

sixpence-detail

The shawlette is worked from side to side with a stockinette body. The top edging is simple and the bottom more ornate - per her request. It's worked to be a bit shallow so it doesn't obscure the back of her dress too much.
