FO: Tire Cover (super cool!) :)
I was inspired by another's project on Ravelry, it's from a free doily pattern but made in Red Heart and J hook makes it super sturdy. I ran elastic along the edge and it stays on perfectly.

Ravelry project page.

Love it! When I read "FO: Tire Cover (super cool!) " I didn't know what to expect. That is super cool!

Oh my goodness! THIS is way cool! I wonder if you could do something like that for a SmartBoard. I have new technology in my classroom, and we (meaning administrators and myself) are petrified that a substitute will mistake the smartboard for a whiteboard and write on it with expo markers. THIS cover would be so unique and serve a purpose as well!

You did a beautiful job, my friend!

That's the best looking tire cover I've ever seen! I wonder, though, if making it out of rope or some other non-yarn material might make it sturdier. Unfortunately, it might possibly be burned off in places by the end of summer if you're in Texas as your license plate redo suggests!!

It's a wonderful idea, and you did a great job creating it. I sure hope no one is stupid enough to steal it (put a lock on that baby, maybe?)

That's a good idea, I chose Red Heart because I thought it was the toughest yarn out there. Someone on Facebook recommended I scotchguard it, which I thought was a good idea.

Wonderful idea and great work. I love it! I'm surprised people aren't getting out of their cars at stoplights and asking you about it.
