I bought Angora fur. Lots and lots of angora fur. White angora fur. I spun it into a laceweight single. I knit it up into about 3/4 of a shrug. It's soft, it's beautiful, it's... about 437 shades darker than my wedding dress, and looks like unbrushed teeth next to it. It won't work.

It's currently in the guest room being punished.

I've started on a pair of socks I'm knitting my aunt.

I want something I've spun and knit for my wedding, but now I don't know what. What can I spin that's going to match the white INSANITY of my wedding dress? I guess I can't really spin anything, because that color white simply does not exist on the back of any animal, so I want to knit something, but I don't want to start over on that shrug with different yarn. I don't really want a shawl, because I find them to be unwieldy. I thought of a veil, but I don't really want a veil either.

I'm sure I'll come up with something, but right now I'm just feeling betrayed by the Angora Shrug.

I guess I'll knit it, then dye it some different color and just have a shrug. Or, actually, I'll make the full on Whisper Cardigan that pattern is supposed to be, and then dye it and have a very light sweater.

The play is this Friday. We're in full on panic mode. I think tonight is my turn to just FLIP OUT. So far I've been very sweet and positive about the whole thing, so we decided that if I'm the one to just spontaneously LOSE IT, it'll carry more weight than if Kevin the Director does it, because he did it last year and they're expecting it from him.

I'm kind of looking forward to my "performance." :)

Picture of the dress

So, I know I'm supposed to keep it a secret, but that's dumb. I'm going to show you a picture of my wedding dress! This is not ME in the dress, of course, this is someone else's picture, but this is the EXACT dress I'm getting.

Isn't it so lovely!!??!?
