A Handspun, Handknit Wedding Veil

Monday, September 27th, 2004

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.
