WIP- wimple
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.

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

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