About the name: Penelope \p(e)-nelo-pe, pen(e)-lope\ as a girl's name is pronounced pen-NELL-a-pee. It is of Greek origin, and the meaning of Penelope is "weaver". From "pene". Mythology: Penelope, wife of Odysseus, fended off suitors by weaving during the day and unraveling at night a tapestry she said had to be completed before she would wed another husband. The name has come to signify a loyal, capable, and clever woman. You wont need to weave all day to make this chunky 'big needles' project. Fast and easy beginner pattern or quick gift item. Easily worked pattern but plenty of textural interest (looks great using variegated yarn too) Worked in the round, no seams, with knits and purls only. Very versatile and extra stretchy - pull it long or wide for different looks, wear as a hood, snood, cowl or shoulderette wrap.

I specialize in small projects with big visual impact. Spicing up the traditional with interesting juxtapositions of texture, gauge, shape and/or color. Completing something amazing looking with nothing but your own two hands, yarn and sticks is so exciting and rewarding.
