Tube scarves and wrist warmers, anyone?

Since I started vacation I've been working on tube scarves as a way to practice working on sets of needles. I guess I'm heading towards being able to knit socks. So I've been working on sets of five needles, setting up the tubes by casting on to four needles and knitting with the fifth. It feels wonky, but I'm slowly getting used to keeping all the needles in order. The tube scarves are supposed to be stretchy, so I've been knitting ribbing.

I want to do a Moebius strip scarf next; my first project was a brim-up hat that started on circs and then went to dpns, so I'm quite comfortable with dpns.

Thanks for the note! I wasn't accustomed to seeing comments - so did you get to the Moebius yet? I know Piglet was going for one of those too, but didn't get to see the results. Do you have photos of your knitting anywhere?
