This one's been a long time coming.
Pattern: Never Wimpy Wimple from Interweave Knit's "Lace Style"
Yarn: Art Yarn's Regal Silk (left over from Annie Modesitt's Silk Corset)
Things I'd change, and things I changed:
I used a yarn that is quite a larger gauge than the one called for in the pattern. That was easy enough to mod for, because the pattern adds the measurements you need to create this one-size-fits-all garment (quite helpful! I love when they do this).
I knit it flat, with teeny needles (I think they were 2.5 mm or possibly 3 mm). The tedium of knitting with slippery silk on such small needles made this project last longer than it needed too. I was determined, though, to have it for the cool weather, and I have triumphed!
It actually turned out nicer than I was suspecting. Just a wee bitty of blocking and it fits quite nicely over me huge noggin. I doubt I'll wear it as a wimple - it makes me look like a large-headed golden turtle.
I still have plenty of Regal Silk left over. Now, what to make with golden silk? The wheels are turning, my readers.
Stay tuned - another FO to come quite soon.
