Wedding related knitting

Okay, I promised no wedding stuff, but I just had to share these:

Knitted ring bearer pillows from Martha Stewart.
I'm thinking about knitting these for ring bearer pillows. I might even try to duplicate stitch (or embroider) on the pillow the design we are using for the wedding (which is based on the beading on my dress).

I'm thinking of knitting a basket for the flower girl:

The the one at right is the Nantasket Basket. The pattern can be downloaded at The Knitting Zone.

It can be made either with the slip-stitch pattern (like shown) or plain.

I also really like some of the purses and/or embellishments put out by Noni. I'm thinking about making some of these to embellish a basket.

Here are a few other wedding and knitting related things:

A few free wedding patterns (everything from a garter to a whole wedding dress)
The Knitted Wedding
Wedding Knits (an entire book for wedding related knits)
I do (shrug pattern, if I wasn't getting married in a very warm place I might consider making this)

Well, it has been over 6 months since I last updated. When I got engaged I promised myself that I wouldn't use this blog to talk about wedding stuff. And I've kept to that promise. But, the result of keeping to that promise has been that I haven't had anything to blog about. I've done almost no knitting since last summer. A bit on Clapotis, and a bit on the Falling Leaves Socks, and one cat bed (the only thing actually finished- it was a Christmas gift).

We moved (back) to Hawai'i last month, and things have been rather hectic. We've finally found a place to live, but don't move in for 10 more days. I'm studying for the Bar exam, which is at the end of July; I have classes at night, which prevents me from being able to make it to the meet-ups on Thursday night. Other than that, my life is pretty much consumed by wedding planning.

But, I thought I would check in and share this little gem I came across the otherday. From

Aren't they adorable? Unfortunately, they are made with marzipan, which I find to be one of the worst tasting things out there. But they are cute! Cupcakes and knitting, what more could you ask for? More pictures and a link to instructions here.

And, for cupcake related crafts (instead of craft related cupcakes), check out this thread on
