Willie Warmer Update

I think I have perfected the glans up magic loop willie warmer. It took me about 5 tries. I knit the shaft in one color, and after I had enough length, I put the two sides on needle holders. Then I cast on with a different yarn and color on my circulars. I did 16 stitches on each needle for the shaft for a total of 32 stitches. On the contrasting color, I did 36. After I knit 10 of them, I grafted them onto the shaft using 3 needles, then I knit the 10 on the other side. Then I closed the loop in my second color and began to knit in the round. After I had about 2 inches, I began to decrease on each end of the needles. When i had 4 stitches, I did a 3 needle bind off. Then I had to turn that sac inside out, so my ball sac is in purl in a contrasting color. It looks nice. Now I just have to go around the tops of both sacs, picking up stitches, and knit about 10 rows and some eyelet holes and I'll be done. I'll post a pictures when I'm thru!
