Well, the blog has been quiet for a few weeks, but I swear I had a good reason....I was getting married!
On October 8th, I finally tied the knot with Alex. This blog has seen Alex go from friend/roommate to boyfriend to fiance to now my husband. So I have to share a few pics.
We were married at Cuneo Mansion & Gardens
and the weather could not have been more perfect. It was 80 degrees! We were super lucky that we could have the outdoor wedding that we had planned!
After the ceremony we headed out to take pictures. These next photos are taken by our amazing photographer, Lindsay Johnson
. Seriously, if you are in Indianapolis and need a photographer, call her. And, hey, she came to Chicagoland for our wedding, so really no matter where you live, you should hire her for something. She is sooo good.
And, of course, there had to be knitting pictures:
My friend, Jenni, who I frequently talk about on the blog was one of my bridesmaids. I can't wait to see more of the knitting pics with us knitting together!
So, that's the wedding. A few days later we jumped on an airplane an headed to Cabo San Lucas. There were a lot of frozen drinks involved in this honeymoon:
We had a great time in Cabo. We cannot wait to go back!
So, now it's back to reality. Well, not totally, as I still have another six days off of work to get the house in order (it's pretty much a disaster after the last few weeks) and to work on my book and some other designy things I have up my sleeve. What, you ask? :)
In January, I will be hosting another Mystery Shawl KAL.
Also in January, I will be releasing the first pattern in my e-book. The e-book will be one pattern every other month with a couple of bonus patterns thrown in there. I am working on the cover art for the e-book this week, so once I have that done, I will reveal the title and patterns and stuff. I feel confident that this will be something my readers will enjoy!
Finally, I have decided to change my last name on all knitting related things. I always planned to change my last name, I just wasn't sure about what I wanted to do in the knitting world. So, you can find my designs on Ravelry
by searching for Jen Lucas (if you type in Jen Hansen, I will still come up).
So that's what's been going on in my life for the last month or so. How about you? What have you been up to?
