Knitting a Kiss in Every Stitch

While interviewing acclaimed knitting designer and WV native Nicky Epstein for the upcoming issue of WV Living, I discovered the most beautiful designs she's created specifically for weddings!

This crocheted bridal bag keeps your lipstick and tissues handy OR doubles as a unique collector for the money dance. To create this piece for a daughter, niece, or very special friend find the pattern in Nicky's
Crocheted Flowers.

Right: Create a timeless heirloom that your future granddaughters will LOVE with these personalized gloves adorned with flowers from Nicky's book Knitted Flowers.

Crochet enthusiasts rejoice and make a bouquet you'll never have to preserve. Young girls all over New York city are doing amazing things with Nicky's Crocheted Flowers. (Calla Lily pattern pictured)

The Bella Bridal Gown featured in Nicky's most recent release, Knitting in Tuscany, is awe inspiring with its delicate crochet work. It's elegant yet simple, and most importantly it's totally unique.

If you're a friend, grandmother, MoB or the bride yourself consider these handmade gems that add those irreplaceable personal touches.

Caught Red Handed

The response has officially been overwhelming. We caught bridesmaid Amanda McCray reading WV Weddings while preparing for the Friday evening nuptials of Kaycee and Frank Crislip in Bridgeport.

Amanda and the girls poured over the pages while getting their hair done at Innovations Hair Salon at 415 Benedum Drive.
