We did it!

Matt and I trying to figure out the whole cake cutting thing.
It was a fabulous, beautiful wedding if I do say myself! It was great to see all of our family and friends who came from far away to be with us on our wedding day! Here are just a few pics from my camera! There will be more pictures later!

My sister and MOH (she was majorly handy too...she fixed my closet and unplugged my bathroom sink while she was in town!)
My dear friends Jen and Sara traveled far to be with me on my wedding day! It was so great to see them! I also got to meet Jen's baby daughter Isha!

Matt and I take a quick self portrait while out on the dance floor! We're off for the honeymoon now!

One day to go!

This is our engagement picture! Thanks Rebecca for taking the pic!
Tomorrow is the big day! After nearly a year long engagement and over four years of being together, Matt and I are getting married! Wedding week festivities are going well - no major issues (which is hopefully the trend!). Now, if only this rain will go away.....I'm willing the sunshine to come out and join us for the weekend so if you'd like to help, I'd appreciate it!

This is the picture from my birthday last year when we got engaged!

It's wedding week!

It's wedding week here at the Knitting Knot! Count down to the big day has been on for a while now, but now it's kicked into full gear. The other day I was going through one of my mental lists of things I needed, and I realized I didn't have a purse to go with my new pretty dress. That's probably a surprise to many of you since I have a felted purse addiction and non-felted purse addiction. Then I realized I had this fabulous little pretty knitted clutch that I've never used! I don't even think I've posted it on blog! It matches the bridesmaid dresses, plus it's cute and I'll use it again, unlike any of those white satin purses they try and sell you at the store. It's the perfect size for my lipstick and camera!

Plastic bags: bad for the environment or good for crafting?

The other day I was helping a coworker find graphics for a story about Seattle looking into banning plastic grocery bags. We were on Google and Yahoo images and found the same thing: if you type in plastic grocery bags into the search engine you get a few pictures of plastic grocery bags, but several pages worth of craft ideas for reusing those pesky bags.

Now that's the kind of recycling I can really love - recycling and crafting!

In other environmental news, does anyone know what I can do with boxes and boxes of Styrofoam packing peanuts?

A little knitting time...

Free time is pretty rare these days as the countdown to the wedding is on! But since I was wide awake tonight, I found myself with something special - nothing to do (or I choose to ignore it). So I'm sitting and knitting and catching up on my blog reading. It's fabulous! The wrap is progressing and I'll try and post a picture soon but no promises.

We're next!

This past weekend we went down to Cannon Beach for our friends J.J. & Shelly's wedding! It was a beautiful ceremony and great fun to see all of our old friends!

The happy couple walk down the aisle after it's official - they're married now!

We stayed the weekend with Mike, Shannon and their adorable baby boy Kellan. Recognize the sweater? It's the one I made him when he was born! He wore it to the wedding and was quite the dashing, stylin' man! We also did some sight seeing along the beach! A cluster of starfish at Haystack Rock enjoy life on the underside.

And what is it about Haystack Rock that makes one compelled to take a dozen pictures of the thing? Here it is first thing Sunday morning! It was really beautiful!
