    The dress is beautiful, the bride darling, the groom handsome! As one who wrangles brides for a living I can say that this photo is wonderful for it’s freshness, the originality (natch) of the lovely gown and the apparent happiness of Mr. and Mrs.! Great Job!

    Hello Brenda –
    I am a new subscriber to your podcast – now up to episode 11 or so, and loving it. I am delighted I found your show (through the twiceknit blog) and look forward to getting to know you, and your sweaters, over the next 40+ shows. I started with the most recent episode you posted (just to see if I’d like it ye know) and heard you talk about this dress. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one to initially raise a brow at the pink-with-black-lace description – but WOW. This is one of those times when a picture just brings it all together. She is a stunning bride and just a vision of beauty and happiness,

Now you can move on to new projects. That can be an unnerving and somewhat lonely time, but with your work on the blog, I’m sure you’ve not a minute to spare. Bella! Bella!
