Wedding Garters

so my wedding is coming up in less than 6 months! EEk it is coming so fast. everyhing is, more or less, already in order, my mother is making my dress and i am making my bouquet and everything else has already been reserved. it really sneaks up on you i tell you what! im more into the marriage than the actual wedding so it is just kind of going by without me. i decided i wanted to make my own garters, i made 2 they are white with a crystal thread in them, made from size 10 southmaid cotton and made from this "pattern". i am going to make 3 more in black for my bridesmaids, i want to do one of those pictures with me surrounded by my bridesmaids and all lift up the dresses to show our leg/garters together.

Very lovely and so wonderful that you are making your own. I like the self portrait of the garter on your leg, that seems hard to do! :)

These are awesome wedding garters- my friend is getting married soon, and that's exactly what I want to make for her. I was wondering if you had a link to the pattern or if you have another way to get the pattern, I'm interested. Because I'm not sure if they are in any books are wedding garters... Thank you so much- and keep on the awesome knitting!! :)
