The picture of the boy with the knitted beard made me think of these nose warmers. My mother used to make them from her scraps of yarn and give them to us as stocking stuffers. Kids put up with an awful lot of evil deeds at the hands of parents years ago!

Yes, it is Angry Birds! It is a game in which you shoot various birds from a slingshot and try to kill all the nasty pigs! Sounds ridiculous, and I resisted playing it for a long time, but it is ridiculously fun! This particular picture was showing that there was more to Stonehenge but the birds knocked much of it down when attacking the pigs.

I crocheted something similar to that for my ex, but it wasn't a nose warmer.

I remember the name: Natty Knitted Nose Warmer. It was in the back of Parade Magazine, as I recall.

Not sure if there's a similar name for Taxlady's version...
