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!
