Family and friends share a special bond; a closeness born of shared experiences and knowledge; perhaps an inside joke or a special understanding, all acknowledged with a wink and a nod. What better way to show someone the warmth of your love by knitting them their own wink and a nod. It is an easy bias knit wrap that would make the perfect gift for someone special in your life.
