Oh, yes!! Experience is what it is all about and does help to bounce
ideas off someone else. My fingers itched to start knitting soon as I
saw the site, but having so much trouble with my knee replacement (20
years old and needs another one) I was just afraid I wouldn't be able
to concentrate on it. Maybe I will give it a try, though. Who knows,
it may be less complicated than it looks. Frances

Hi Mirjam,

Why not try someplace like a costumer for a ren faire?

In the Book
Patterns for Theatrical costumes, Garments, trims and accessories from
Ancient Egypt to 1915, by Katherine Strand Holkeboer , Prentice hall
press, 1984 ,
one can finns Wimple patterns on pages 108-9, 114-5, 292-3
the pattern looks like a rectangle but in the drawings it is worn
covering the neck and by clever tucking it becomes a
hood like front cover ,,, Thus now i wonder where this other form of a
Pipelike hood , came from ?
The book, The Historical Encyclopedia of Costume, By Albert Racinet,
Studio editions, 1995, shows on page 116 in cahpter The Orient ,
Christian monks and nuns ,
the wimple is mentioned as .." the veil, worn over a band of white
wool that frames the face , is suggestive of a wimple.

So now i wonder more about the origin of it ,

When I first read the first item I confused a "wimple" with a "snood".
According to Encyclopedia Brittanica:
"The wimple originally was adopted as a chin veil by Western women after
the crusaders brought back from the Near East such fashions as the veil
of the Muslim woman. The wimple, usually made of fine white linen or
silk, framed the face and covered the neck."
"During the Victorian era, hairnets worn for decoration were called
snoods, and this term came to mean a netlike hat or part of a hat that
caught the hair in the back. In the 1930s the name was given to a
netlike bag worn at the back of a womans head to hold the hair."
