I didn't actually reverse the chart, I just changed the symbols on the chart key I printed out from the errata so that the instructions had the correct symbol for the left arm warmer.  Did that make sense?

Here are mine. What a fun, quick knit. Like others, I had difficulty reversing the pattern, so I just did both the same way. I don't think it makes much difference. I'm a bit miffed however that my 2 skeins didn't start with the same color even though they're from the same dye lot. Is this common with Noro? It's my first time using it. Oh well.

Bethann,

Noro skeins do that a lot.  To get mine to match up exactly, I had to play around with the second skein until it matched the beginning of the first armwarmer.  I've never used 2 skeins of noro that started in the same place.

Ne-
Thanks for letting me know. I was starting to think someone at my LYS had taken a sample of the skein or something! Smiley

ugh...i'm so frustrated with myself. i completely finished these armwarmers, seams and everything, then when i tried them on the R one fit perfectly but the L was too big! i must have gotten really comfortable with the pattern b/c it is way too loose so i frogged the entire thing....again. i did the R one twice too. the first time i worked from the inside of the skein of noro and didn't like the colors i got so i frogged and reknit from the outside to get the prettier colors. don't think i'll do the L one yet though. i need a break. i'm almost done with tempting and about 4-5 inches in on "sexie". i'll get it done in the next couple of weeks. thanks for listening to me vent. i knew you would understand.

I finished mine a while ago but I was too lazy to post the pictures.  On the first one I pulled the yarn from the inside and then when I started my second one the yarn started at a totally different place.  I really didn't care about them being the same colors anyway.  
I also started the thumb gusset at row 35 instead of row 30 because I knew it would annoy me to have it go on my fingers. :]

Hello all!  I am a newbie knitter and this is my first posting so remember...patience is a virtue  Wink .  I was inspired by all of the incredible photos in this thread (and the invaluable assistance with the whole knit 3 front and back and front, etc) that I decided to post a photo of my armwarmers now that they are done.  I used one skein of Manos kettle dyed and decided on using a simple aran braid from vogue knitting once I realized that the charted pattern  in SnB didn't work well with my yarn.  I had so much fun with this one that I have already purchased yarn for a second pair!

Take a look:

 


Until next time...italian101

I finished my 1st armwarmer a couple of days ago. I think it turned out so cool. I really enjoyed making it and it's something I actually want to wear! This was also my first dpns and chart project.

Here's my armwarmer
