16 years

tomorrow...November 25, 1992. The day I married my soul mate and best friend. Today, I finished this to hang on the doorknob of our bedroom.

My Everything by

The Sampler Girl

fabric: 32ct Lambswool linen

fiber: Caron Waterlilies in Cherry

The handle is i-cord I knit with the same ribbons I used to make the tassels. Is it just me, or does the hanger and tassels look a little like pigtails?


For *D* from me, Happy Anniversary!

Awww, that is such a sweet finish! Love how you knitted the hanger. I think the bows are what gives it a pigtail look.....I tried blocking them out on the computer screen with my finger and yeah, it's the bows but I think it looks cute.
Happy Anniversary to you both!!

Heather said...
