Ever since I made that afghan, I’ve been way into the idea of making things that consist of a bunch of separate pieces that are joined together somewhere along the way. This was actually finished quite some time ago, but I never got around to posting about it. Anyway, I found a very beautiful pattern online for a cowl here, but I didn’t actually follow it. Not because I didn’t like it, but because sometimes I get weird about things on my neck & wanted something quite a bit looser & a bit more casual since I tend to dress so fussy already. So basically, I studied the pattern & ended up with something following the gist of it, but a bit different. Anyway, if you do choose to follow the pattern, I think it’ll look wonderful & be a fun project as the pattern is very clear & easy to keep up with! Plus there are other really cute patterns on that site, I kind of want to make this, not for bridal purposes, but just because I think it would be fun to wear a garter.

    Lol, we made my garter. Yeah, we! Jeff picked out the elastic lace at JoAnn’s and the red satin ribbon. Then, at home he helped me sew it. Sewing it was a bitch, because we had to keep full tension on the lace while I attached the ribbon. Luckily we bought extra. That was when I learned he was afraid of the sewing machine.

      Awh, how cute are you?!?! Elastic lace really just sounds like it would be difficult to sew. I tend to get annoyed with anything that isn’t regular cotton knit in general
