Pinky Protector

Now what in the world would I want with a piece of rubber hose.

Well, I am a KNITTER. And when I knit my tensioned yarn is around my pinky no matter how I try to wrap. I have been getting a groove in that little pinky. So DH and I are going to try to make a pinky protector.

The inside of the hose is circumference in 5/8 inches and it fits my pinky quite comfortably. The outside circumference of my pinky is 7/8 inches.

Will continue to post the progress as it is done. DH has some ideas. I hope they work.
Update: Nah.......this won't work either. Now the right tools and then hose isn't as comfortable as I thought it would be.
To keep on pluggin' away.

Doesn't Help the Pinky

I have been looking for something to put around the bottom of my pinky so my yarn doesn't put a groove in my skin. This was suggested but as you can see, it doesn't quite do the job. So I continue in my quest.
