So, it's official...
Only a few days after making the cross-Altantic move to Germany, we went off to the registrar's office (just Georg, I and my translator) and we did it!
(it totally cracks me up to have my translator in our wedding pictures-- I can't help but post this)
Immediately afterwards we hopped on a train bound for Prague and enjoyed a glorious weekend there.
Of course there was plenty of knitting to be had on the train, especially appropriate when you're in the midst of your wedding shawl (for the official family celebration in October).
This is my first forray into entrelac (it's the Wedding entrelac shrug) and unfortunately this pattern is not at all designed for novice entrelacers. I had a very difficult time starting out, especially because it begins differently than most online entrelac tutorials. Thus, after I finally figured out how it worked, I made up this chart which I am hoping will someday be useful to a fellow confused knitter out there.
Glad to say that I've finally figured it out though and it's coming along slowly. I am using someLion Brand baby alpaca which makes the endeavor all the more scrumptious.
There are absolutely not enough words to describe how gorgeous and endlessly charming Prague is. Really, both of us were totally blown away. Unfortunately I don't have many photos as of yet since both G&I are primarily film photographers... but for the meantime I leave you with a few glimpses of Prague at both day & night...
and many greetings from us to you!
