And here it finally is the first ring bearer pillow. It is perfect for bringing some colour to the wedding as it is brownish red knit lace on top of natural white cotton pillow. It is actually not the very first one I finished but I like this pillow very much (it is the only one so far with nupps in the lace edge) and so it got the honor to be featured first.
The idea of knitting ring bearer pillows came from a good acquaintance. We were both in a seminar together and I told the participants that when I knit wedding shawls and bridal scarves I do smaller samples of the pattern first and I don’t know what to do with the finished samples. And, she said that why not to make them into ring bearer pillows.
I went home, thought a bit and after that, I have knitted many ring bearer pillows and loved doing it. When I knit them I imagine their journey towards the waiting bride and groom with the rings attached to them and it is a very happy and intense feeling and I try to knit a bit of that feeling into the pillow.
I have several knit lace ring bearer pillows waiting for their sewn cotton pillows (I will sit down with my thread and needles one of these days – I promise) and then need their pictures taken (a sunny day please). After that there will be a long awaited flood of posts about ring bearer pillows here.
