Kewl!

Actually those look like the kind Rinoa wears from Final Fantasy (yes I'm a gaming nerd =P).

I'll have pics up soon, but I finished one armwarmer with the Landscapes and it turned out that I had just enough yarn. Just in case anyone else wanted to try a bulkier yarn but was skittish. I was too hyped up about these to be skittish. They're kinda bulky (yours are definitely more feminine) but I like 'em anyway Smiley

3 How many cast on stitches?

I tried the 34 stitches she thought she cast on. She never mentioned needle size so I tried 8s since they're the smallest I have and it came out almost right. I'm tiny but I have these muscles. I think if I had used cheap acrylic like she did and cast on maybe 40 on the 8s it would've been cool.

Haha woah.... this was quite a few months ago so I don't remember everything exactly....

1) I'm pretty sure they were 7 US

2) I'll have to go through my craft room boxes that aren't yet unpacked (just moved) and I'll get back to you on that one. All I can tell you is that they sell the same acrylic yarn at the Dollarama here in Sudbury Ontario Canada... They also sell it at Walmart... it's cheapo I'm a student who needs to save money stuff. You see I'm still not sharp enough to know what the difference between worsted weight or whatever else yarn is... I just pick yarn that I like and make stuff since I always wander off from patterns to make them my own anyway... Haha... But I do know that it is about the same thickness as the Red Heart Kid's yarn because I have the fluorescent green one and it's pretty much the same. Hope that helps a little. I will get back to you though... alrighty? One day I'll be yarn savvy enough to answer everyone's questions promptly... one day... one day!

3) I didn't go back in my post to check... but I think I started by casting on 34 sts (ooh I'm using abreviations! hehhe). All I did to figure out how many sts I needed to cast on was take a piece of string and wrap it around my forarm and cut it to size. I used it to guide me as to how many sts needed to be cast on... Also make sure that your rectangle will fit pretty snug around your wrist so that it won't end up looking like just what it is... a rectangle.  Cheesy

Hope this helped answer your questions!  Wink

You did a great job!  If this is your first project, I can't wait to see what you're knitting a few months from now.  Keep up the good work.
