I had a co-worker ask is I would be able to knit up a nose warmer for his wife. I knew of a pattern off knitty.com and had some leftover yarn from my wife's shawl so I agreed to his request. I was over due for a change from my current shawl project and enjoyed working on something new.
I've already passed on the nose warmer and was happy to find that her nose is now toasty warn in these chilly evenings.
One side note about the shawl. Since my last post I have ripped out 3 attempts to continue with my progress. All of the pattern choices/correction never quite fit the scale of the patterns already in use. I've settled on a simple traveling vine pattern that I'm very happy with, after a minor modification for no other reason but "just 'cause". With the new patten, I ran out of stitch markers and opted to using a clean straw, cut into thin rings. They work quite well and now have an extra dozen or so extra markers.
Until next time...
