Random Sunday

The weather has improved somewhat after yesterday’s snow. Here’s the second photo I took yesterday. This one is from the front of my house looking West (the opposite direction from yesterday’s photo).


Depressed by the sudden onslaught of winter, DH and I took a ride up to Ogden in the afternoon. I finished the wimple in the car on the way back.

Picture 229

FYI, the pattern called for 300 yards of lace weight yarn or 200 yards of fingering weight yarn. I used Rowanspun 4-ply and followed the instructions for the lace-weight version. I used about 2.5 skeins; each has 160 yards. So that’s about 400 yards.

I blocked it only lightly since I want it to remain stretchy. And I used a really stretchy bind-off and blocked the bound-off edge so it flares out slightly. That will be the bottom edge; the part that sits on the shoulders.

This is for my pal in the International Scarf Exchange. Hope she likes it!
