My current knitting project is Elegan Wimple. It's a super easy pattern. I really needed some way to make a 'stay put scarf and a no nonsense hat'. I have just finished my 'husband love scarf' which is a simple 2x2 Rib keyhole scarf which really helps keep it in position around the neck. My husband now wears it inside the house and slaps it around the neck of anyone who walks in the door to show them the warmth... now I have tooo many people wanting me to make them scarves!! I needed something that would stay put around my neck and viola! there was the elegant wimple! The pattern is really hard to see.

Since she refers to her husband in the first post, I don't think she's really a nun...

That was my first thought, too! None of the nuns I ever had wore anything other than black and white and boring. :roflhard:

My aunt used to be a nun, and she actually did wear curlers under her habit! She is, shall we say... unique? ;)

Sadly I am not really a nun... I am officially an ordained minister, but that isn't why I've made the wimple. http://www.carylldesigns.com/wavy_feathers_wimple.htm . I am using LB Wool-Ease worsted weight in Wood color 232 which is really beautiful! I made my shitzu a matching doggie sweater!

I had to look at this since I've never heard of a wimple! I would've called something like that a 3 way scarf (tube that you can use as a wimple...but would've had to just describe how to use...I had no idea there was a real name, a scarf or neck warmer). It's really pretty!
