18 November 05 - 10:22 my new car has new tyres as well. they're a bit larger than the originals, so the standard wheel cover did not fit the spare wheel on the back. however, these things need to be protected from wear. this, of course, is an open invitation for a knitter.
in between chores i've been pondering the possibilities. what i'd like most is to knit something out of so-called ski rope, a nylon rope meant to pull water skiers. but my yarn need not pull anyone, it need not be so tough and hopefully that enables me to find something cheaper.
yesterday i found thatching twine. perfect for the job, but the colours aren't half as bright as the ski rope. mix mix, think think. i bought a cone of black. and a length of orange and white ski rope. now for a nice lacey pattern... antimacassar anyone?
