Arm warmers
Here are my finished arm warmers. This is my first DPN & cable project. Working with DPN's wasn't as scary as I thought it was going to be and I look forward to using them again.

The yarn was sent to me by a kind KF member (Thank you), I had never used 'Noro' before, but I love it, the way the colours blend... I think it's gorgeous and wouldn't love to try more.

There are more photo's on my blog.



I hope you like them.

I like those a lot - beautiful yarn. I've been on a major fingerless glove/wrist warmer kick lately - love the instant gratification!

Nice job and I'd like to ask about pattern also as I've been inspired here to try a pair of these! What sort of yarn was it? (Like, what is Noro..wool/acrylic blend??)

Thanks for the nice comments, I'm glad you like the arm warmers,(and my blog)!

The pattern is called 'Hurry up spring armwarmers' it's by Renee Rigdon, and is in the book 'Stitch & Bitch Nation'. It's a great quick project, I really was surprised how quick they both turned out.

The pattern calls for; Noro Kureyon, I had Noro wool sent to me, it's a silk, kidMohair, lambswool mix. It's lovely to work with and the colour change is great. I have some left over, I'm going to make a little purse to keep my keys in to go with the armwarmers, I'll try and use the cable pattern that goes up the middle of the arm warmers.

I recommend making these up, quick and easy, even if your a DPN virgin like I was.

I also have a fetish for anything that keeps hands warm in any form. The colours are stunning (good work on matching them up too!).
