Congratulations to you both. I too am in awe at your ability to keep your private life out of your blog!

A Scottish blessing: "May the best you've ever seen be the worst you'll ever see.... and may you always be as happy as I wish you now to be."

That's awesome! Wish you all the best or in other words:

Желаю вам счастья,
Желаю удачи,
Желаю веселья и смеха в придачу,
Желаю здоровья, желаю задора,
В семье чтобы не было капли раздора.

Congratulations and best wishes. I hope your honeymoone involves some visits to the LYS. : )

Now, that's one hell of a k2tog! All good wishes to you both!

I am just CRACKING UP this morning! I was doing my daily wedding photographers blog surfing, and I was checking out http://www.gulnarablog.com/ - I thought to myself, "WOW! That bride looks SO much like Grumperina! I should send her this link!" ... then I came to the post with your engagement photos, saw Gulnara's comment about you being from Boston, and now I am still laughing!

I love it when my photography world and my knitting world collide like that! And I'm amused that I almost emailed you the link because the bride in the photos (you) looked like you!

Best wishes! Hope you have a FABULOUS honeymoon!

Congratulations!!! I hope you have a wonderful life together.

Wow! Congrats to you! I wish you both all the best in your life together. :)

515+ comments? Good thing you didn't send out invitations! Seriously, congratulations! And instead of socks for Grandma, maybe they should be a little remembrance of your honeymoon? Just a thought!

congratulations and aren't you the clever one. I think the British word for this is "gobsmacked". Will there, I wonder, be souvenir yarn....

Wonderful and best wishes!

WOW, what great news! Congratulations!

You quiet thing you. Congratulations, lots of love extended to you both.

Congratulations! Wish you both much much happiness!

Congratulations! I hope that life together keeps you both in stitches! :)

Pozdravlyayu vas!! I wish you many, many years of deep, enduring happiness, friendship and love.

That takes some getting used to (in a good way)... saying "my husband."

Getting married was the best thing I ever did for myself. I hope the same is true for you and Mr. Sweetness.

Let me be no. 550+ to say, "Congratulations!!" Wishing you both many, many years of wedded bliss!

Congratulations, that picture is so sweet!

Wow! Congrats and best wishes - you are a beautiful couple!

Congratulations! :)


Oh MY! Happy Happy! And Congratulations to you both!

Woot-woot! Oh my gah...as a reader I had no idea you were engaged! You really kept it on the down low. So happy for you though, CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like that post knocked all of our socks off (in a very happy way) because we've all delurked to comment! Wow!

Aw, congratulations -- how wonderful! I got hitched last April -- feels great, doesn't it? Hope you're both very happy together! :-)

I will keep you both in my prayers.

What a wonderful way to start the new year. Congratulations!

mazel tov!

I have been admiring your Odessa Hat for quite some time now. I myself am not a hat person, but I have a VERY young frined who is getting ready to start chemo, she is 33 and has 2 kids ages 7 and 5. I was thinking of knitting her a couple Odessa's as chemo caps. Only thing is, is I don't have enough yarn experiances to figure out what would be soft enough for a bald or balding head, and do you know if the beads would irratate. I want something fresh and young, and pretty, but also soemthing she will grab all the time because it is comfy cozy!! Any suggestions would be helpful.

Mr.Grumperina has excellent taste: after all, he's chosen a mate respected (dare I say revered?) by so many of us who admire your flair, wit and talent. A lovely photo and marvelous news. Much happiness in the many years ahead. May your union never unravel!

Congratulation! (sic) as my French-Canadian grandmother used to say. Miss her. Anyway, great pictures at Gunlar's site. May it be forever one.

Hubba hubba!

Congratulations! Enjoy your honeymoon!

Congratulations! I wish you a long and happy life together!

Congratulations! May you have a long a happy life together.

Wow! Congratulations!!!! Have fun in New York! Enjoy every single moment!

Warm congratulations and best wishes!!


Wow! I've been away for a few weeks and come back to this!

Congratulations to you both! Hope you have a wonderful honeymoon and best wishes for the future!

I was SO surprised when I opened your blog page. This is a great new and I wish you tons of happiness!!! We cannot wait that you are back... enjoy your honeymoon

Best wishes for a long, happy life together!

Finally delurking to wish you many happy years together. E.

I went and found some of the photos from your beautiful wedding - oh my, they brought tears to my eyes - so beautiful you and your new sweetness.
