Hey everyone...this was an idea that came from a bunch of us in another post who have collaborated and come up with this quit-a-long
Are you thinking about quitting...this is the way to do it!!! I quit smoking just 21 days ago...and I feel that knitting is the only reason I have made through so many days. (wow, that reads like an infommercial!!!) anyhow...the few of us have inspired ourselves and we decided to knit this fellow craftster's tube top that is simply yummy...Join us in our effort to defeat the smoking with knittin sticks!
you can take a peek at the this lovely tube top in the completed projects section under "jiffy tube: top in a jiff" and/or Flapperjacks blog http://woolywooskie.blogspot.com/2005/01/jiffy-tube-top-in-jiff-updated.html
Heres Miss Flapperjack's pattern (Thank you Flapperjack!!! This Toobie rocks!)l

Finishing off: work rib pattern in K2, P2 for 10 rows, bind off and weave tail into work.
Fin. ;-)gauge stuff for this tube top
: 7.25st = 4" : 20 rows = 4" on No. 9, 24" circular needles
(On the skein of Jiffy Yarn itself, the gauge is 11st = 3" : 9 rows =2" on No.10 needles in St st.)A note from the tube top queen who made this excellent pattern, Craftsters very own, Flapperjack!
: Hey guys, I'm psyched you've decided to make my tube top! Just a little heads-up though... when you bind off, see if you can bind off in a K2, P2 way,(i'm not sure if this is even possible. I've never tried it, but I'm trying to visualize it) because while everything else fit fine, it was a tid bit snug at the top where I bound off regularly. If this doesn't work, perhaps try increasing your stitches in the last several rows, before binding off.
Good luck! Cheesy
alrighty guys!!! give up one set of sticks for another!!! and think of all the yarn you can buy after giving up the ciggies!!!! oooh-la-la!!!
