You may remember our trip to Tofino in mid-October to celebrate the wedding of two of our best friends and favourite people (one of whom happens to be my amazing photog for kove).
At the time, A asked me if I would design something that would keep her warm on the beach and complement her gorgeous BCBG satin dress. My answer was YES!, as I had been secretly wanting to give her something handmade to wear that day.
After a bunch of yarn scouting, swatch creation and many Google Image searches, we came up with the off-white shrug you see in these photos. Crocheted with a 100% Tencel yarn from Birkeland Bros, I thought it had just the right amount of sheen and just the right amount of warmth.
The credit for these shots goes to the lovely Ariel Kirk-Gushowaty...um, except for this one:
....which is a little gem from the user-operated photobooth - something that may or may not have been a little too much fun into the wee hours of the evening.
