i know what you mean about living in halls of residence Smiley so is this a bought pattern? if it is *darn it* but still - a post of appreciation, they look v. professional (particulalry impressed with the felting - was it done a la washing machine?) and i LOVE the colour Smiley

thanks for all the kind comments guys  Cheesy about the shaping - i just followed the curves of my hands and decreased/increased as appropriate. I'm no great fan of patterns (most of the time i mess em up) so i just got the dpns out co 40/50 (need to dig out my notes) and then as the arm goes thinner decreased, until around my wrist i had 30sts, then from the wrist increased according to the increase in width of my hand.
does any of this make sense?!
i really could do with having a look at the notes i made - i made a "trial" pattern to see what size fitted best, that way adjustments could be made when making the real thing Cheesy

A good one is "Reason" by Hoobastank, in case you haven't heard it.   Grin
what a great song! I really loved it when it was first released but then didn't play it for ages- thanks for reminding me of a great song!

just some double knit that they had at my local store, when I saw the sparkles I was like "oh, I gotta get me some of that!" when i saw that it was also reduced in price it was like a double whammy. They're really warm plus they wash well Cheesy

Well, I'd seen quite a few arm warmers that I'd liked the look of on Craftster. So when it came to me doing some leafleting in November/December in the UK (which means it's super cold!) I knew I had to have some - that would keep my arms/hands warm whilst leaving my fingers free to leaflet (they also had to be pretty) hence the choice of yarn - enjoy!
Action shot:-

Left arm:-

Right arm:-

Close up so you can see the sparkles:-

Proof there's two(!)

Yet another shot!

Hope you like! (Excuse the state of my room!)

well at least that turned out right! i did the rose pattern, but alas it looked all wrong - rather like a spiral of pasta!!!!

hey - i tried the alternative pattern on page three, but as i can see no piccies, i'm not sure if i've done it right/ what i'm then supposed to do with it - personally, it looks like a leaf to me!

I love EVERYTHING about this dress - the colours, the shape, the sleeves  Cheesy (am I gushing? I think I'm gushing so I'll stop now) Grin
