Ear Warmer

Younger daughter is taking a winter term class that is was kicking her butt.  So she could concentrate on studying and not be lured by the appealing "let's go out tonight" invitations from her friends, she decided to come home each weekend.

As you know, I am taking a sock knitting class and my rendezvous with the needles sparked a renewed knitting interest in younger daughter.  During one weekend home, she made a beautiful "infinity" scarf and this past weekend, she made a lovely ear warmer head band to match.

She chose a medium weight, variegated yarn, casted on 70 stitches on size 5 circular needles and knitted until the piece measured five inches in width.  When done, she said "this really needs a flower or something."  I sat down with my crocheting needle and whipped out that little bud you see.

Very easy. Adorable for a quick, two hour project!
