“Can you crochet a bridal top, something like this?”, she asked…. and held a photograph of a crocheted Greek wedding dress under my nose. “Yeah, sure, why not?” I answered.. and thus began the journey between “How in hell do I manage this?” and “Hey, wow, it actually works!”
Miles of yarn and nerves and trials and sweat and frogs and halelujahs and re-trials later, I watched her get out of the car on her wedding day, all smiles, wearing the crocheted top. Such a beautiful bride! And me all in tears – and mighty proud of what I had accomplished.
This is a project that I will never forget. Wishing the newly wed couple the best of happiness and luck.
