Hey, they look awesome! I don't suppose you could get some more photos up so we can see a full view of the shirts instead of little snippets  Huh

Pleaaaasssseee  Grin

I'm tempted to do something similar with my shirts too (why do they always shrink in the wash huh!)

Take care

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Wheelie from Knitty on: February 28, 2007 03:35:10 AM
I am planning on making one of these.  I have a tweed yarn that more or less matches my upholstery. I really like it, but it is not Cascade Fixation.  I am slightly concerned about using a yarn without that elastane content (this is what makes fixation so stretchy right?).  I think I'll give it a go anyway, but will need to make it slightly larger to compensate.  I will definitely be using puff paint on the inside of mine.  Has anyone had a go at a Wheelie using a sub yarn?

As long as you make it a tight fit and use puff paint you should be okay. Another alternative would be to knit with a strand of elastic aswell but it would use loads of elastic and wouldn't look very nice so yeah stick with the puff paint! There are plenty other steering wheel covers that don't use elasticated yarn so I don't see why you can't do it here.

Good luck with it and don't forget to post photos!!  Grin

looks great! i've always wondered if they slipped though?  does yours move around while your driving....or more importantly, when you're turning around corners?

Hehe now that would be a funny sight! I made sure that it fitted really tightly. It's made with cascade fixation so has elastic in it so I just stretched it loads to fit it on my steering wheel. I made sure the I-cord was really tight aswell and put it through the top of the triangle and the bottom so that it fitted better (not sure if that makes sense but if you go to the pattern you will understand what I mean).

I haven't had any problems with it slipping but if you were worried you could paint the underside of the cover with some rubbery glue stuff (I'm sure it has a proper name). I know in SnB nation the cover in there suggests you use a glue gun and glue lines every few inches or so around the inside of the cover in order to provide some grip.

Glad you like it  Smiley

I finally finished the wheelie from knitty! I want everyone to make one and then we can all be part of some knitting car club and take over the world! Has anyone else made it? I'm going to make the matching visor pocket so stay posted...


There is more about it on my blog www.eternalsunshineknits.blogspot.com Thanks for looking. Comments welcome!  Grin

Hehe that mutant sock monkey is awesome! What a clever idea to use toe socks. There was a phase when they were in the shops all the time and I got a pair but they made my toes cold (did anyone else find that or was it just me?). Have you named them both yet. I think the pengiun should be called Ringo as in pingu and red sort of put together. OK maybe I didn't put much thought into that one lol. They're both great though, your friends are very lucky to have a crafty friend such as yourself!  Smiley

I love your sweater especially the cabling detail on the sleeves. You've knitted so many lovely things (I perused your blog for quite a while!) and you live in such a beautiful place, I'm so jealous!

I may now have to go away and knit this and imagine that it's snowing outside (it's raining at the mo) Grin
