Big News.

I have some news to share.

I got married last Friday, August 12th.

We kept it a secret for many reasons which hasnt made us too popular but that's what we did. We had an amazing day on the Friday with just 6 friends (Ellie and Dr Lucy were 2 of them!) and then had a party on the Saturday which we'd invited people to under false pretences.

We've been together nearly 7 years and engaged for 3 (pretty much to the day) so it was about time we got married.

But I knitted my bouquet. This is my other WIP that I've had going for a few weeks but obviously couldnt share it. I was desperate to post photos. So here is the finished product.....

Dr Lucy stuck the sprinkles from the table in the bouquet.

Ellie helped me make the little roses I'd knitted from a pattern in Knitted Flowers  into a bouquet. I wish I'd knitted the leaves too but I couldnt find a colour I liked so we bought silk ones instead.

But I can keep it forever. We did everything as cheaply as we could and I resented having to pay a fortune for flowers that would be dead in a week, so I knitted them. What else?

I had an AMAZING weekend. It was lovely. Friday was everything I'd hoped it would be. We've been to Paris for a few days since and have seen all the famous sights and eaten more than our own weight in cheese. It was really lovely. And I'm so happy. :)


  1. Wow! Congratulations! Your bouquet is amazing! I would love to have had that on my wedding day.

  2. Thanks. Was quite exciting making it actually. Glad I found the time to do it. :)

  3. Oh my word that bouquet is the coolest thing I think I have ever seen. Did you follow a pattern or was it a bit of freestyle craftiness? Congratulations!

  4. Thank you Shiny bees. I followed a pattern in Knitted Flowers (see the link on the right) to make the rose heads but the rest was down to Ellie's creative flair. Have a look at her facebook page
