A Handspun, Handknit Wedding Veil

June O., a woman on several of my email lists, just finished a lace wedding veil (blog entry September 26). She spun one teeny-tiny ply of cashmere/merino and plied it with a commercial strand of silk. Then she knit and knit and knit. You must see this beautiful thing. If you click on her photo (of the veil draped over her spinning wheel), you will see another view of the veil, being blocked flat.

Wowie! I can’t even imagine someone would attempt such a wonderful thing. Yet she did it, and it is gorgeous. Beautiful job, June.

Photo: Morning Glories in my garden the morning of the 26th. The artificial daisy was a gift from one of my adult computer students, and the flower climbed it to get more sun.

    I was wondering if June O. would be willing to sell me a copy of her pattern for the bridal veil; I am interested in knitting one.

    I also would like the pattern – my son’s future wife has asked me if I would like to knit something. Would love to have it! Thanks you very much. –ingrid
