I finally finished Tubey!
Eeeeesh, didn't that take a long time!
Although, as with everything I make, I'm not entirely happy with it. The stripes did what I thought they'd do, and widened my torso, and there's a lumpy poochy bit at the back where I did a LAME job of picking up stitches.
Ah, give it a few days, I'll like it then.
Pattern: Tubey, from Knitty (tm),
Yarn: Patons Jet (80% wool, 20% alpaca), approximately worsted weight, in the colours I thought best approximated those in the original pattern. It knits quite nicely, although sheds a teeny bit.
Notes: I hate circular needles. I used 10 balls of the grey to make the large size, and needed an extra ball of brown because the ball meterage is quite short - 74/m per ball. This is a lovely pattern if you aren't crappy at picking up stitches like I am.
I'm going to go buy my world cup yarn! Eeeee! Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oi Oi Oi!
