Do you remember this shawl? I made it three and a half year ago to wear on my wedding day should it be a very cold day. It was a fair assumption since it’s Sweden after all and also since that summer was such a rainy one. Two days before the wedding it rained so hard that it poured into the taxi I was in. Then on the wedding day the sky was blue and the sun was shining. It was way too warm for a woolen wrap, and it stayed that way for the rest of the month. I wore it to a friend’s birthday celebration but that’s pretty much the only time I’ve taken it out for a spinn.
This weekend though, this shawl got to fulfill its purpose – to be worn on a wedding day. My friend Emma got married this weekend and on her shoulders you could find this little sweet thing. I’m so glad it got to be part of Emma’s day, since it was intended for a wedding. I’m glad it got to serve at a winter wedding, where it would be appreciated for all its qualities, its beauty, its color and its warmth. It deserves that.
