The Wedding Shawl

It's finally over and the pressure is gone.  The wedding was held over the weekend and my gorgeous cousin totally rocked her shawl:

Amber also danced with The Youngest (notice my other Joe Cool cousin in the background):


The Youngest cracked me up during the wedding.  He told me that he looked so good in his "fancy clothes" that everyone was going to think he was the Groomer.  :) 

During the ceremony he leaned over to me and said, "See the little girl behind you?"  I said that I had seen her.  Then he leaned in again and said "I look prettier than she does."  It was all I could do not to laugh out loud.    My little clothes horse likes his suits!

Here's the final pic of the shawl all laid out for you:


I'm so relieved this is over.  The stress of making a shawl for someone's big day is HUGE.  Before the bride opened her gift, I was in knots.  What if she didn't like it?  What if it didn't match the dress?  What if the look was all wrong?  Folks, I couldn't have matched up the color of the yarn better with the dress if I had seen  them both together before hand.  And the style of shawl was perfect with her dress too!  Yay!
