A few months ago, a wonderful blogger and knitter named Sinje Ollen came in to do a blog post about the Studio. While she was here, her eye fell upon the LB Collection Cashmere. We keep the cashmere (along with lots of other wonderful yarns) on the needles on the project table for people to play with. She sat down and started to swatch a beautiful lace pattern. She scooped up 15 balls of the Natural color to design the perfect garment for her friend’s wedding. We made her promise to come back and show us when she was done. A few days ago, She came back to show off . . . WOW!
The main piece was a large square with two slits for the arms. The sides of the arm holes had button holes that lined up with the buttons on these amazing gloves
She then folded over the front and used the Lion Brand Yarn Studio’s beautiful One World Button shawl pins to close it. The top of the square simply folds over creating this wonderful shape in the back
As if this gift wasn’t already special enough, Sinje added this beautiful detail of a tree (inspired by Nicky Epstein’s Tree of Life) that was the tree on the wedding invitation and the tree her friends were getting married under.
A truly beautiful wedding gift, and we were honored to have her share it with us.
