What Would Princess Langwidere Knit? Well… not much. I imagine her ordering her poor maid to knit something to cover the join in her neck. I think she would have chosen something soft yet practical. Of course, then she would have changed heads and screamed for a showy lace. The maid, only having had time to make one garment, might cleverly think — Reversible is the trick! Something luxurious and soft to wear with some heads, and smooth and warm for others? Merino and mohair. Done. And then get out of the way because the Princess just might like the look of you!
