When Life Cycle becomes a Chuppah!

Hello All! I decided that I needed to blog more than once in July (even though it was a vacation month)! I have been Instagraming religiously, which is a great way to share my days in photos, but I do owe you a post with photos from our trip to Europe and my meet-up at Wollmeise. Those are going to have to wait until next week as one of my Craftsy students and Ravelry members shared some photos with me from her wedding and I'm too excited for you to see them!

Earlier this Spring PlasticSushi posted in my Ravelry group that she was making Life Cycle as a chuppah for her wedding, and had LOST her knitting bag with her partially completed project while at a convention! We all went bananas and helped her brainstorm how to find it, and luckily she did, because look how absolutely stunning it is....







When I designed Life Cycle for my Craftsy class Lace from the Inside Out, I envisioned it as being a warm wrap, perhaps to make for an elderly loved one, and as a baby blanket for a new family member, but I didn't anticipate it's ability to transform itself into a Chuppah!

I am in tears... congrats Ariana and Ever on your marriage, may it be filled with laughter, love, friendship, honesty and support! Thankyou for sharing your creation with us!!!

  2. For us that are not aware, can you explain what a chuppah is and its significance in the wedding ceremony? Thanks. Isnt it awesome when your designs appear in the most unexpected places? Has to be a good high (light)....♡

    1. Oh... of course, it is a traditional piece of fabric under which Jewish wedding ceremonies are performed:

    2. This will for sure become a family heirloom. A quick story of how we never know when family heirlooms are begun. 25 years ago I wove a Chuppah for my brother and sister-in-law to stand under. Years later my other brother remarried after having lost his wife to cancer and they stood under this Chuppah and years later still my nephew stood under it. The names and dates have been embroidered on the Chuppah so generations will know who all has stood under this.
