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!

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??
