Maggie Brown Something Old, Something New
I’ve completed the pennant – based on the wedding dress aspect actually – I’ve knitted it in silk so it can be a silk wedding dress (or part thereof) and worked on the something old & borrowed (the dress), something new (the knitting) and something blue (the colour of the silk). Also worked in cobweb weight silk. The cobweb weight shetland yarn is what they use for the wedding ring shawls that (theoretically) are so fine they can be pulled through a wedding ring although I have made one in the past and it would need to be a man’s ring to be able to get it through.

    This is soooo beautiful……

  2. Nancy says:

    Soft like a dream! To lightly touch this fine work…(((sigh)))

  3. Nanette says:

    I haven’t been online for a few days, busy with gatherings of a different sort as family and friends, came to celebrate a Big-O birthday with me, so how wonderful to find hearts and flowers, wild things and fine, fine knitting waiting to be perused and exclaimed over. My flights and accomodation are booked……I’m coming!

  4. Nanette says:

    It is! You’ll be feeling excited and nervous all at once.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Nanette))) one of the good things about writing the grant applications last year is the production schedule, it really helps me keep an eye on what needs to be addressed & when

  5. Fiona says:

    The delicacy and lightness of this; the soft blue hue…sigh.

  6. debgorr says:

    Love this! Such a beautiful gathering…

  7. Nanette says:

    Aah, I didn’t realise you had a grant…..even more exciting and yes, a good way to stay on track.

    • Mo Crow says:

      I applied for three grants last year all to no avail but it’s worth having a go, the process of writing the applications helped define & refine my ideas about the project, create a budget and understand the what, how and why of it all, am still honing the statement for the catalogue figuring I won’t really know what to say until the work is settled in situ just before the opening!

  8. Hazel says:

    Mo, So much to catch up on here…Your gathering of the wild, delicate, beautiful and deep is beyond imagining. Glorious to see and for the spirit.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Hazel))) Maggie knits the finest lace I have ever seen outside of a museum!
      thanks for these good encouraging words as I am feeling a bit shattered after taking a bunch of very bad photos today of all the pennants, the good news is Old Man Crow saved the day by taking lots of excellent photos with his iPhone so tomorrow we’ll swap hats, I’ll be the assistant and he can be the photographer!

  9. Dotti says:

    Its divine, so very complex and full of stories! Beautiful!

  10. wow…….no words
    no words Mo for this gathering
    Mo…love…you are…love
