So this may be a little OT, but JumboNeedle and I would like to annouce our engagement! To tie it into knitting, he made me a knitted pouch (actually a very wide toe up sock toe) and presented the ring box in the pouch tied with a ribbon. What a keeper (if I do say so myself)! He even admitted that he had some help from the ladies at his LYS (Sit n Knit in West Hartford, CT). We're both very excited but haven't set a date yet, however I will be knitting our chuppah (which could set the date back a few years).

Hooray!

Ring picture and pouch pictures to come!

Mazal tov! Hope you'll keep enjoying each other's company for many years to come and have great knitting hours together! Knit your own chuppah? Are you sure? From my experience, it's usually a really huge piece of cloth, unless you're planning an intimate one...Could you post a picture of what you mean? And congratulations again!

!!Congratulations to you both!!

I was just marveling at the Chuppah pattern in the Summer 07 issue of Interweave Knits...gorgeous! Quite a project but hey, you've both got the skills to work it together!

Pretty sweet! ;)

Mazel Tov! This is a super sweet story! Keep us posted on the Chuppah progress! I have been to a few weddings where the Chuppah was quite small (4'x4' maybe).

Thanks everyone!

I am planning on knitting the one from IK unless I find a lace pattern I like a whole lot and can make a lot wider very easily. I know it will take a long time, but since the wedding is probably 2 years away I have plenty of time!

I am so excited to make a keepsake and family heirloom that women and men in my family can get married under in the future.

I promise to post pictures when I get home tomorrow!

Blessings!

Thank you everyone! We will probably start going to look at locations this weekend? Any advice?

Trust me, you will get a lot of advice from people you know (and, don't)! :eyes:

It will be fine - just don't get so caught up in the ceremony - keep in mind it's the marriage that is important! :heart:
