This Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk has been sitting around being fondled LONG ENOUGH! Time to turn it into a garment.

I've decided to make a wimple to wear on my head during the cold months. It should feel HEAVENLY around my face! :heart: :heart:

Thanks, my friends! :muah:

Sorry for the delay in responding. I stay up all night knitting, and sleep until noon, before going to teach piano lessons in the late afternoon and evening.

Thanks for answering about the wimple, Rebecca!

The photo below shows another wimple, being worn as a hood. Mine is a different design - just simple seed stitch at the face and stockinette the rest of the way. Here is the pattern for the wimple pictured below.

I wasn't sure what a wimple was either... but it reminded me of something a nun wears I think. It's going to be pretty!

Well, I've been a church organist for 27 years, so I guess I ALMOST qualify as a nun! :teehee:

I love that color, too. I think pumpkin/cinnamon/burnt orange/terra cotta colors go greatly unappreciated. It looks sumptuous.

I've been carrying my wimple with me, and working on it when I can. It's a little longer now. The seed stitch edge is the part that will go around my face.

I had to get a "friend" to hold down the wimple so I could get a decent photo. One of my piano students gave me a bag full of stuffed animals for my new grand-daughter!
