Experienced knitters don't make fewer mistakes than new knitters. They make bigger ones faster.

So much has happened!

I'm married!!! 

Without getting into too much detail, the wedding went extremely well. Everyone looked great, everyone behaved, the food was awesome, the DJ was great, and I think everyone had a good time.

Here's a rundown of the gifts I made (all from stash)

My Wedding Shrug

Made from the Posh Wedding Shrug by Classic Elite. Yarn used was Sidar Snuggly Baby Bamboo. Ribbons added were left over from our invitations.

MIL Shawl

Pattern used was the Conifer Shawl from Knitscene Winter/Spring 2010. Yarn used was Naturally Caron Country.

Mom's Shrug

Pattern used was Anthropologie Inspired Capelet. Yarn used was Caron Simply Soft.

Darren's Cowl

Pattern used was the Cousteau Cowl. Yarn used was I Love This Yarn! worsted.

Everyone loved their gifts. My new MIL looked awesome in her shawl, and Darren, our reverend, lives in Chicago and rides his bike everywhere, so this was the perfect gift for him. There's even photographic evidence that my shawl looked awesome.

I also have updates of the startitis projects from before the wedding. 

Shalom has a completed yoke, though the arm holes turned out a little off. I'm going to power through it anyway and see if I can correct them. The problem is they are too big and seem to be set too far back. Perhaps the divisions for the arms are not set up like I thought. Or my math could be off. 

My Gabriel Shawl isn't too far along, though i did add an extra row so that I wouldn't have to p2tog for the eyelet row. I was having a hell of a time doing it because the yarn i'm using (Knit One, Crochet Too Ty-Dy socks) splits like crazy. Now that i have it under control, i think it will go much faster.

My second pair of the Knitmore Girls' Vanilla Socks in Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Colori Socka Color are halfway done. I CO 60 this time, and the first one fits very well. I finished it during lunch Friday, and immediately cast on the second one.

Tomorrow I should have an update on the Holiday Stashdown 2010.
