We're getting to the point where it's warm enough outside to not need hats and gloves (yay!) but it's not too late for this simple accessory. I finally finished these armwarmers, made from this pattern on knitty.com, and love how they came out. They supply the perfect amount of added warmth for, say, taking the dog for a walk at sunset, or walking around town with a refreshing ice coffee in hand. Plus the yarn, with it's fading shades of green, is quite lovely to wear.
It took only one skein of yarn to make these. I like the variation in color and the asymmetry of the pattern. I'm trying to decide if I should use the other skein to make another pair... or something else. hmmm?
