Flower Girls

The sweaters were finished, blocked and (most of) the ends were weaved in by the time we got to the wedding last weekend.  I say most because I somehow missed one end on Lily’s sleeve so I just ended up tucking it up into the sleeve all day.  Making the sweaters was a really good idea since it was unseasonably cold in Milwaukee last weekend.  While the wedding party was having pictures taken, it even snowed!  I probably could have gotten away with making the sweaters out of alpaca for even more warmth instead of bamboo. The couple wanted wedding photos taken outside at the Joan of Arc chapel on the Marquette campus.  We carried the kids, wrapped in the men’s tux coats, the three blocks to the chapel and hurridly took the photos.  Everyone had goose bumps! 

The three flower girls were adorably cute, as only 3 and 5 year olds can be.  They did a wonderful job walking down the aisle; they even held hands the whole way! 

I’m pretty positive that someone took a photo of the 4 of us together.  However, I don’t remember who it was.  It certainly wasn’t with my camera.  My camera had a wonderful blurry effect all weekend that I couldn’t figure out.  I kept changing the settings and messing with the focus.  Turns out that Lily had been playing with my camera last week and got messy fingerprints all over the lens.  Now that the lens is clean, it takes crisp photos again.

    I came across your blog while doing a Google search for girls’ shrug patterns. I have 2 daughters who are also going to be flower girls in a wedding this coming April and am searching for a simple, basic, easy (I’m a beginning knitter) pattern to make a couple of shrugs for them since the weather in early April here in MI could be anyone’s guess. 🙂

    Would you mind sharing what pattern you used for these? The pictures you posted look exactly like what I’m looking for, but I’m having a very hard time finding any kind of pattern online. Thank you so much!!
