I am writing to update you on the Chuppah because there has been no knitting on anything else at all. I started on the border (twice!!!). Here is what I am going with.
They are little leaves and are turning out so well. I omitted the first three stitches of this pattern-because it was just garter stitch. It looks better without it, trust me. This is just the leaf from the swatches down below. It's better this way.
However, it will take at least 120 repeats of the 14 row pattern for the border and I have 6 done. 6. Good thing the wedding is not for a while.
