Knitting for myself
First, a muff. We have a short commute, so short the car heater doesn't warm me until a block before my office. My hands get cold, and I made this to keep in the car and warm my hands. It's a great free pattern from Knitty.com, that uses up the odd ends of yarn you have left from projects. I choose a nice, warm, soft, alpaca-wool blend for the ribbing at the ends; as you can tell I've fed the ribbing from one end up through the middle of the hollow pipe of knitted material, and will be sewing the two ends together to create a sealed tube.
