You may have knit from "oddballs" but the color combinations you come with are really inspiring to me as I am often putting together odds and ends for chemo caps, but want them to look "planned" rather than "left-over." I use your dialysis shawl pattern too --to knit on long car trips. The local cancer center really appreciates those and you and your "no point at the bottom" pattern have been my inspiration.

I especially like LenaB's shawl for its simplicity and practicality. I made a couple of small modifications to my last one. Before I started the final "section", I cast on 15 sts at both ends of the needle (was using aran wgt w/ #9 circ) and worked those with the regular section (increases done in reg section, tho changed from YO to kfb so no hole). I made that last section twice as wide as others (20 rows vs 10). After BO, I folded and sewed the 2 flaps to make tissue pockets (originally thought to sew up both long sides of pocket, but shawl curve made better access w/ a long side left open). An unintended benefit of these changes is that the wider last section gives better back-of-the-neck coverage ..... kinda like a shawl collar. I made the pockets in garter, but will probably do either the pocket or that part of the regular section in stockinette to reduce thickness.
