A Perfect Weekend

This weekend, I :
1. admired how lovely the Wedding Shawl is. (If I do say so myself, *ahem*).

Pattern specs:
Swallowtail Shawl, by Evelyn Clark, from the Fall 06 IK.
Yarn: Misti Alpaca, Alpaca lace, 1 ball plus a few yards of another, in Green Meadow.
Needles: US 4 Bryspun circs. The super-pointiness of Bryspuns was key to work the K5tog for the nupps. Key.
Mods: In order to get a larger shawl, I worked 19 repeats of the Budding Lace pattern (instead of 14). I worked the Lily of the Valley edging as per instructions.
Knitted for: the bride.

2. I baked wedding cupcakes (carrot/orange, carrot/ginger and carrot cake cupcakes), and the bride made her cake topper: a drawing of a banjo and a paintbrush.
3. I was a witness for this solemn occasion.
