WIP- wimple
1 Attachment(s)
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.

it makes me want to sing...

And underneath her wimple, she has curlers in her hair!!!!!!! I've even heard her singing in the abbeeeeeeeeeeey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want a wimple! I just like saying wimple! Try saying wrinkly wimple really fast!

Uhm, sorry to hijack. :shifty:

Pretty! I have to say, I had never heard of a wimple before I started knitting...

That's pretty!

I though only nuns wore wimples. :thinking: I bet not like this one!

That's REALLY pretty! What yarn are you ;)

BTW....another term for this kind of wimple is COWL.

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