~*Wee Tiny Bride And Groom Socks*~

I had the pleasure of test knitting the patterns for these wee tiny socks for Meg Bakewell and waited to show them to you until she could put the kits in her etsy shop bravelittleknitter.
Also you can purchase just the patterns on ravelry.
The kit includes plenty of yarn to knit both the bride and groom wee tiny socks, about 40 yards in total.
The yarn for the bride is an amazing 100% silk indie dyed confection in the colorway Champagne.
The groom's yarn is 100% merino wool in pure black, along with enough white in a merino-nylon blend for his shirt. Also included are pearly white size 8 glass beads which are knit into the bride's bodice, and a beading needle.

The six page pattern is laser printed with color photos, and includes detailed instructions for knitting with beads (for the bride) and intarsia in the round (for the groom).
The patterns are easy to follow and the wee socks are so darn cute.
Here are pictures of the ones I knit.
