Yesterday, I saw an amazing car parked on our road.

To think about the commitment and dedication of the person who knit this marvelous thing - a crochet cover for a spare tire! Look closer...

I had to stop and admire the craftsmanship: the colors, design, and execution are just flawless. The only thing - you'd sooner see it as a sofa or a pillow cover. The juxtaposition of the girly, homey, handmade knitting with a "muscular" car in all its technical glory had a striking effect.

This unusual knitted cover seems to be made as a statement and an object of art rather than for utilitarian purposes. And I applaud the audacity and ingenuity of its maker!
