...Down The Aisle...
One year ago we were celebrating the marriage of our youngest daughter Kate to Chris. It was a beautiful day and a wonderful ceremony.

When our daughter Kate became engaged, she asked if I would design something for her bridesmaids. She wanted something lacy, with beads, in different colors to compliment each bridesmaid and their likes and coloring. Down The Aisle was born!
Down The Aisle is knit flat, attaching beads or pearls as you go. The piece is then blocked and finally grafted together using the Kitchener stitch.
