Crochet Wedding Gifts
Well, we’re knee deep into Spring here in Colorado. Most of my heavy wools have been stowed away in favor of linens and cottons. Rich fall colors have been traded in for more honeyed tones. But my favorite color for Spring and Summer over any other though, is white. Mostly, I think it's because I'm a little OCD and the blank slate and cleanliness just makes my heart sing but I have other reasons, too. I love the crispness and purity of white garments. I love the feeling of renewal and openness that white gives. Which fits in nicely with my topic for this week: My fav color, crochet, and weddings are a match made in heaven. The romance of lace, the feminine fripperies like the garter and veil all beg to be crocheted. Even entire wedding dresses of crochet have been strutting down the runways lately (see below). You don't have to go that extreme to sneak some of your favorite needlecraft into a wedding, though. Just a touch of crocheted loveliness can give a memorable and exquisite finish to a bride's outfit.
