FO-bike helmet ear warmers
Just made these up quick. Saw it on Ravelry and my ex-husband/roomate saw me looking at it and said they look cool so I made him some. THe pattern is here:

http://blog.makezine.com/archive/200...ttern_p_1.html

But I used some leftover Bulky lamb's pride instead of worsted and CO 24 stitches instead of 36, and used a size 7 needles for a really tight weave. I made them two ways, first made two flat peices and seamed them. Second I made in the round which came out much better. These were fun, quick and easy to make.

Cool, I like those. I think I'll make a pair for my helmet. Sometimes it does get pretty chilly even here in FL.

What a cool idea (warm really :-)). I had to go to the site to see how they attached. Yours turned out really nice.
