My first wedding related injury

Burnt myself on the iron when steam blocking last Sunday night. Was on the phone with my mom - when she heard me say "Ow" she asked what was wrong. When I admitted to burning myself, she said "You probably shouldn't be doing that while talking on the phone." Apparently I can do nothing without total concentration, or disaster may occur.

Treatment included a Spider-Man ice pack (no, I do not know why we had one of those in the freezer), some Neosporin and a band-aid. One week later my arm looks like this:

And the dress looks like this:

Lightly steam blocked and still on the needles - which I shoved into the cargo pockets of my capri pants for this photo.

I almost can't wait to really wet block this thing. Only the fact that it will take both many hours and about a million pins is holding me back. That and the fact that we keep having company on the guest room bed.


  1. OH. MY. God. It's GORGEOUS!!!!

  2. Geez Amy, you are truly talented! I love it.

  3. Fabulous work! The pattern and the choice of yarn make it look so delicate and beautiful. I'm really excited to see the finished product in May!

  4. It's beautiful. Can't wait to see the rest.
