I'm cutting this sooooo close...but, WHEW, I'm just in the nick of time. (Almost had a heart attack when I couldn't get my pictures to upload...rawr...)
I used four skeins of Caron Simply Soft Eco, in three colors, from Wal-Mart at $2.28/skein. Added up, that xomes to $9.12 total. The ribbon I used, I had on hand and was given to me some time ago. The colors I chose are black, charcoal and ocean mist.
I really didn't have much of a clue as to what I was going to make when I bought the yarn, I just knew that I wanted to get as much as I could without going over $10 and make as much as I could to give an idea of what all could be made with that amount. I'd been wanting to make a pair of armwarmers for awhile of my own design and had been writing down ideas when these popped in my head. As for the wrap...well, I don't like it as much as the armwarmers, and I had some troubles with it, but all in all I'm okay with how it turned out. (Definitely going to make another in a similar fashion, only with more yarn and a better shawl collar.)
On to the pictures!!:
The armwarmers can be worn two different ways. Shown above is with the top bit around the palm/fingers rolled down and at the size you would normally see them. Scroll down to see the other option.
The second option is with the top portion un-rolled and covering most the fingers. This actually works very well in warming the fingers. Especially when driving. Keeps them from freezing on the steering wheel
Laying out and un rolled.
A horrible picture of me wearing one to show length better. Please ignore the fact that I'm in my (mis-matched)pj's (it was early morning), have messy morning hair and a shiney forehead.....
The wrap with wonky collar. Sorry for the not-so-great picture.
Back of wrap. Even more wonkiness...
And finally, I believe it is time for me to hit the "post" button, crawl in and cuddle beside the bf, and go to sleep...woo sleepy-time...
