My mother saw my smoke ring at Thanksgiving, and wanted me to make her one. She picked out the yarn and bought it, and I knit it up for her. She loves it! (yeah!)
Pattern: Wavy Feathers Wimple
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas – Alpaca and Silk in Flax color.
(I used about 1.8 skeins)
Needles: US 5
Took me about a week to knit this up. The lace blocks just beautifully.
No mods to the pattern – I followed it pretty much to the letter. It’s a very nice item to knit on – the yarn is lovely to work with, the pattern isn’t too complex, and it goes pretty quickly. To top it off, when you’re done you have this very useful item – it’s so soft, and it keeps you toasty warm without the bulk of a scarf.
