Back in the SaddleBy
Back in the saddle after many weeks of being preoccupied with wedding stuff, and being away on a truly epic honeymoon :) Feels good to be home, good to be married, and I got to celebrate my birthday in Rome. I’m a lucky girl. Also, we had fireworks.
On our honeymoon, Aine was with me every evening on the ship :) I am completely in love with this cowl, the texture is out of this world! Linda Marveng, the designer, is a genius.
I had been cabling without a needle for most of it, but finally gave in and started using cocktail stir sticks.
I love this photo, because it shows my bridal henna, before it faded off:
This lucky cowl got washed in a cruise ship sink and blocked on our balcony on a sunny day in Greece =D Tough life!
And the best part? FO shots in Rome. Not just Rome, but from the Ponte Sant’Angelo (completed 134 AD). How very, very cool is that? In the background you can see the Castel Sant’Angelo.
I dropped from the recommended 13 repeats to only 10, because I’m super short and it just felt better on me. The texture and smoosh factor are out of this world and the reversible cables make me unreasonably happy.
The yarn is Sweet Georgia’s Merino Silk Aran (discontinued) in the colour way ‘Goldmine’. I’ve been hoarding it forever and this was just the perfect project for such a luxury yarn. I couldn’t love it more! Ravelry project page here.
Beautiful!!! I love the look of this. How difficult are those cables!!?? I have only done cables once and they were very basic! The color is beautiful!
Welcome home Mr. And Mrs. Tito……..! What a fantastic wedding day and honeymoon! You’ll always – always – remember these times. They never fade. And those memories will always bring a smile to your face. So perfect!
This cowl is gorgeous as well Shireen! I’m sending this page on to my knitting friends. I’m sure they’ll all want to look as beautiful as you do in that photo!!
Gorgeous cowl! Congratulations on your wedding :)
Congratulations on your wedding! I love the photo of the two of you! Fantastic gorgeous version of Aine, Shireen! And you have taken so many gorgeous photos of it! I do not know how I am supposed to choose so I can send you a photo request on Ravelry!
Awesome share! Beautiful cowl. And amazing photos. Congratulations on wedding and birthday 😊
What beautiful images of a beautiful life you have…love, light, fresh experiences, creativity. Thank you for sharing these moments with us. And congratulations on your wedding–and on all those cables you did to make that beautiful cowl. Cables=intimidating. I’m making a baby blanket with staghorn cables over a thirteen row repeat–and if I lose concentration even a little the whole thing is off. Ack. Probably not the best choice for my first cable project. Anyhow, enjoy enjoy enjoy all this beauty in your life!
Also, can you please tell me what is in the background of the gorgeous photo of you and your husband? Are those lit up raindrops I see? What an amazing shot!
