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?)

Wow! That is really beautiful!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

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.

Beautiful and unique! Somehow I was thinking of a sticker reading something like 'honk, if you get it' I keep thinking about all the knitters/crocheters standing behind you in traffic, going wild and not being able to tell you
