Last month, we introduced you to Tonks, the bride who is single-handedly knitting her entire wedding. When we spoke with her, she had a lot of projects going, which you can see in the gallery above. Now Tonks is getting started on the tuxedo for her groom.
She's chosen a dragon-skin stitch based on this example, and she's using a dark grey wool yarn for the coat. Tonks reports some frustrations with her early efforts on the tux, including worries that the wool is too heavy and that she won't have enough of it for the finished jacket, but she has decided to move forward with her current plans and make it work.
Tonks is knitting the tux in multiple sections to avoid problems with the weight of the overall piece, and she's starting with the coat tails. We think it looks great so far, and can't wait to see the finished product!
Keep up with Tonks' hand-knit wedding at her blog -- she really is a DIY superstar!
The gallery above has been updated to include some of Tonks' latest accomplishments.
