A Wildflower Wedding



I always feel so honored when knitters choose to knit my patterns. 

There are just so many patterns from so many amazingly talented knitwear designers out there. I am so grateful when one of my designs is chosen from the vast sea of available options.

But nothing is quite so special as when one of my designs is chosen to be knit and worn for one of the most important days in one's life.

A wedding.



I was beyond flattered when Allison Scoon (sticknspokes on Ravelry) contacted me last year to tell me that she would be knitting my Wildflower Cardigan for her upcoming wedding on the Isle of Mull on Scotland's west coast.

What a romantic location.


When she sent me these pictures, I was blown away. 
The cardigan turned out so great and she looks so beautiful in it!

As an avid knitter, it was very important to Allison to have handknits prominently featured in her wedding. 
She knit her husbands tie and kilt hose as well as her two lovely daughter's bridesmaids cardigans
Truly a handknit wedding! Every knitter's dream.



I am so grateful to Allison for choosing my cardigan design for her special day and for allowing me to share it her amazing pictures with all of you. 



Congratulations Allison and Malcolm!

Thank you to you all for all the lovely comments. I'm still blushing from all the kindness.
I love knitting Alana's patterns but this one was special.
If you wanted to read any more of the wedding story then there are 6 posts so far on my blog http://sticksnspokes.blogspot.co.uk/
Thank you again Alana for such a lovely post x

Wow, amazing. Beautiful sweaters. I'm so impressed that she had time to plan a wedding and knit sweaters. There is no way those 2 girls are her daughters, she looks way to young to have daughters that old.

How charming! Your beautiful design is definitely wedding-worthy. The bride looks so very gorgeous! I love this.

What a beautiful looking wedding, and the cardigan looks perfect on her! Just wow.

Bonnie said...

Wow! The cardigan looks wonderful, and kilt hose? That's true love.

Brandi Schoch said...

The sweater is just lovely but the kilt hose blew me away.....I should try a pair.

Wow! How lovely! The cardigans are beautiful. Such special outfits for a wedding. And, I absolutely LOVE the plaid of the groom's jacket. It is smashing! Good luck!
