For most of my life, I had a reduced sense of smell (a condition known as hyposmia). I could recognize strong odors like orange peels and gasoline, but most scents were lost on me. But for the past few months--and for unknown reasons--my ability to smell has fully returned. To mark this olfactory upgrade, I crocheted this nose:

Smelling everything has been a mixed blessing. On one hand, inhaling a bakery's fresh bread is divine:

On the other hand, my dumpster diving career is now sadly on hold:

At the very least, I no longer feel as self-conscious when reading crochet books in public:

It will take awhile to adjust to having all five senses again. I should pass the time by following my under-appreciated recipe for Beef & Mashed-Apples Shepherd's Pie. I hope it still tastes delicious!

UPDATE: I need a new shepherd's pie recipe.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!  Congratulations on your sense of smell and your sense of humour!  Also I love the little bit of nose hair poking out...  It's so perfect.

Congrats on regaining the sense of smell.  Also you picked a perfect project  to celebrate it.

Fan-Freakin-Tastic man!!!! I am thrilled for you, and what a great way to celebrate your sense returning!

I love it!  Great news on your sniffer too.  Now all you have to do is crochet a little nose hair trimmer to go with your crocheted nose.  Sorry, I'm just not a fan of nose hair, in real life or in crochet, and that right nostril is freaking me out!!!   Shocked

Seriously, great project! Grin
