Haruni: Kristen's Wedding Shawl (July 2015)

July 2015 found me knitting away on a Wedding Shawl, for my daughter Kristen, for her wedding in August 2015. I had been saving this pattern to knit for her: Haruni by designer Emily Ross, as I knew Kristen would love the vintage style of this design. I also knew that I would love knitting it! The beautiful floral border was perfect for the addition of the small, clear beads that I love to add to wedding shawls. And the easily memorized pattern gave me the opportunity to fill the knitting with loving thoughts and prayers for the Bride and her Groom.








                       Look closely, and you can see the beads placed along the spines, easy to add
                                         to the stitch (before knitting it) with a crochet hook:


                         Kristen's Matron-of-Honor, her sister Libby, had planned a fun Bachelorette
                        Weekend get-away in Nashville, TN, and it was there that I gave the Bride
                         her Wedding Shawl. She loved it!




Three weddings in 10 months.....and three wedding shawls! and I couldn't be happier!
