So I finally got my hands on a digital camara.  Let's see if this works...I just made up the pattern for these. 
Yarn: Red Heart in an unknown color
Needles: US 5
Time needed: I worked on an off over a week

Those.  Are.  Fabulous.  You should totally make more and sell them (to me Grin).  You'd make tons of cash!

Sand is overrated.  It's just tiny, little rocks.

Thanks for the compliment, cinerobot!  I was thinking of making a couple pairs to sell, but I haven't had the time lately.

Actually, they look a lot like shortened versions of this:

But perhaps just change the central cable to a right twisting cable 8 stitches wide.

I. Love. These. Armwarmers.

I never thought myself capable of loving armwarmers, but there you have it. I love these ones.

I did look at the mikado pattern when I made mine, but I decided that I did not like the thumb gusset (notice the holes in the picture) and that I would want them tighter.  And I was not as taken with the antler cable, so I replaced it with a 6 st cable.  So I think I cast on about 48 sts instead of 56, and then I worked decreases down much faster to about 38 sts.  When I got to the thumb, I worked make ones twisted instead of knitting/purling into the sts.  Then I had to cast on extra sts in order to get to a multiple of four for the end ribbing.  The key was swatching beforehand and watching how tight they were as I went.  They were pretty fast to knit, but I don't know if I will have the time to try again.  So many other things on my knit list!

I finally made a pair of armwarmers that I actually like and wear (though they aren't nearly as nice as some of the ones you all have made):



I used one skein of Koigu Kersti.

hmm...i started the picot-edged fingerless gauntlets from the first issue of "knit.1"  a couple months ago but put them down for some odd reason (it wasn't because they were boring to knit!  i swear!)  you all have inspired me to finish them...i'll try to post a pic as soon as they are done!
