Tube of Warmth

A while back my godmother gave me a bag full of yarn which she had intended for a project and then forgot what she wanted to use it for. It sat for a long time taunting me and begging me to be use it creatively. Well, I found this pattern called Stripes to Keep Me Warm and then I used the Stripe Maker program in the knitting resources section of my toolbar over there on the right and started knitting. It was fun "potato chip" knitting - oh, I just do one more stripe.

I was skeptical as to how it might look but have decided I really like it and I wore it today - it kept me snuggly warm (even though it IS finally 50 degrees) and it was easy to wear around without too much bulk.

That looks great. I bet it feels good to wear too. Actually, I am wishing I had one for myself to wear today!
