Wow! That is ummmm, it's uhhhh, well you did a great job of knitting this tie. Actually to be honest, it really doesn't look too bad once you see it on! I didn't even need my sunglasses to look at the picture. Way to go Mason. Thanks for modelling your Skittles Tie!

No doubt.

I may wear it to a bar some time just for giggles. :mrgreen:

I think I missed the first thread about this tie. It is interesting...and bright.

Somewhere, I think Knit Picks , I saw a nice tie pattern using sock yarn. You might check it out.

How often do you wear a tie in your line of work??

I agree, it looks better one than I thought it would.

I bet you could top it if you make one out of some fuzzy yarn.

I think you should make your new avatar a picture of you wearing this- just to scare the newbies!

Well, as a newbie, I think it's hysterical!!! Not so much scared, as I am intrigued :). It makes me want to make one for my husband and act like I seriously want him to wear it

Sometimes you just need to have a little fun with your knitting. :mrgreen:

you are hysterical! I love it! The striping reminds me of something but I can't place my finger on it.... (and I wasn't AROUND for the 60's trips...) LOL!

Wow! I actually think it's pretty cool! It's certainly not an "oval office" or boardroom kind of tie, but it would be a scream at a party or bar! :yay:

I just showed my DH...he agreed, but added that you could also tie it around your head and go back to 1967 and be a hippie. ;)

Thanks, yeah I just made it up. I tried a few different stitch patterns with that yarn before I settled on 1x1 ribbing.

You should be proud. I love to knit but I really need a pattern.:thumbsup:

It's no big deal. Almost everything I knit these days is just made up as I go along. It's more fun that way. :mrgreen:

I've done a lot of hats and only one, Silver's Palindrome Hat, was done from a pattern. They usually turn out ok.

Well, whether or not you actually wear it (in public) I like the colors, and you did a great job on it! :cheering:

My Dad had a collection of Ties like that, he was REQUIRED to wear ties to work as a HS teacher. This was his way of rebelling, its VERY cool

Wow, that was fast! Thanks for sharing--it is a really cheerful project!! If only I could finish my socks so quickly. I think I'm unintentionally making some really hideous socks . . .

I was too Tangle, and when I realized it, I frogged it (I only had one finished). Now I am making solid red socks to match my housecoat, because these are to be slipper socks on worsted weight yarn. I am making them to keep me warm. I am living in a basement apartment and it's cold down here!

Hmmmn...I missed the original post about your, um...interesting tie.

Two positive things about it:
-No one will think you are a boring guy.
-My dad would probably love it (of course, he has been known to wear black socks with red shorts and black sandals, so this isn't exactly good news for you;) ).

ya know mason, it would look pretty slick tied around that cowboy hat too....knit a matching bolero...;)

I assume you call it the Skittles Tie because of the colors. I actually like it. The colors laid down in interesting patterns. Not a dress tie I guess, but a fun tie. How many guys make their own ties? This is a conversation starter. Good job.
