I think I officially have “wedding brain” now. I met with a florist this afternoon and decided on flowers. I’m doing simple flowers – only for the wedding party, no decorative flowers. Everything is in lovely shades of peach and rust, with scatterings of little green berries. My bouquet will look something like this, without the really orange flowers.

Other wedding things… our favors are mostly finished, and that is Marc’s domain anyway. I’m working on programs and placecards, but I am held back a bit by the non rsvp-ers (I just know I’m going to have to call around to my relatives!) We have contracts with the caterer and the bar people. I’ve decided on music finally, and lined up which of my wonderful fellow musicians will be performing. And we have rings!

Marc’s is titanium and mine is… something. It’s a family ring. I am glad that mine is so teeny, because I cannot play piano in large rings! I still have a lot to do, but I am not stressed… it will get finished, and all will be well!

I also (to keep it on topic) made a few more hexagons and joined them together. I really love the way these look, even if my acrylic leftovers are a bit brighter than my usual colors.

I’m eagerly awaiting the release of the fall knitting magazines now, or at least the previews from Interweave knit and crochet, and from Vogue (I want to make the debbie bliss sweater on the cover!) I am so ready for fall knitting now, and I chose to wait on buying my birthday yarn until I could see what the fall magazines were offering.

Edited to add: This is the cover of vogue knitting I have seen, URL is here.

I love swingy cardigans!  This is, I’m pretty sure, also in Debbie Bliss’ new Cashmerino book as Romy.   And unlike most Debbie Bliss patterns it doesn’t call for crazy amounts of ease – the 32″ bust is 32″ inches, according to the schematic at the website above.
