Partly to be cheap, partly because I like the way Lily's cotton Sugar N Cream yarn feels, and partly because the steering wheel desperately needed some padding for comfort... I crocheted a steering wheel cover. I started with crocheting a strip, 17 sts across, to fit around the wheel snugly (fit it snugly, because the cotton will stretch slightly after being on the wheel). After reaching that length (a snug fit around the wheel), I sewed the ends together and placed it on the wheel. Then I basted it onto the steering wheel (if you think you'll want to remove it for laundering at some time, etc., you'll want to baste it firmly onto the wheel), but heck, I like the way it looks, if it gets dirty beyond belief, I'll probably just crochet another one!
