A couple of weeks ago I finally put the finishing touches on Tubey from Knitty. I've since worn it out and about a couple of times, but only got around to conning asking one of my friends to take a picture of the finished product.



There are a couple of other pictures in my photobucket account, but I like that one the best.

If I could do it over again, I'd place the stripes a bit differently and make it a bit longer (I was running out of yarn and didn't want to buy more, so I ended sooner than I absolutely had to), but overall I'm pleased with how it came out.

Very nice, I like the stripes on the sleeves, unique touch.

I would also like to say, the pictures you have of the self-striping mittens are very cute.

I don't seem to have the yarn labels with me at school, but I'm pretty sure my memory is accurate for these names. The black, red, and light blue were Suri Merino (55% alpaca, 45% merino), and the teal was Inca Alpaca (all alpaca). All of the alpaca makes it a bit scratchy, sadly, but the Suri Merino was really really nice to work with.

Tubey was pretty easy to do (and not excessively boring, either); you should definitely go for it!

I really like it. I have a question though. Your neckline looks different that the original pattern. Did you modify it? Thanks.

Daizyduke: I didn't really like how low or wide the neck was when I finished it, so I sewed a little of it to the shrug part on each side.
