so.....i started knitting a pair of bella's mitts (the pattern can be found here: http://subliminalrabbit.blogspot.com) for a co-worker waaaaaaaaay back last december. until i ran out of yarn. and then i spent MONTHS looking for that yarn and couldn't find it anywhere, which is not surprising since i bought it about 4 years ago originally. it was quite frustrating because i had one mitt done (except for the thumb), and i only had about another twenty rows to go on the second one (excluding the thumb again). so i kinda tucked the project away in a bag, stuffed it into my knitting bin, and ignored it. until now.....





so fast forward to last week, when i *finally* dragged this forsaken project out of hiding, and decided to unravel the top portion of the basically completed first mitt, and i bound it off. then, i took the "new" yarn that i'd reclaimed, and used it to do half thumbs on both. i also bound off the unfinished edge on the second mitt; and now instead of being full bella mitts, they are beautiful bella armwarmers.



and my co-worker loves them! Smiley

Great job! I love the design...I would love to make myself a pair, too scared though (I am a beginner at knitting/crocheting). Keep up the good work  Grin!

I love these mittens (have made a pair for myself), but what a cute idea to mod them into armwarmers! I might just have to make myself another pair  Wink  Thanks for sharing!

don't be scared! these look a lot more complicated than they actually are, and it's a really satisfying project since they don't take that long to knit up. it's also a great way to learn a bunch of new skills: knitting in the round on dpns, cables, picking up stitches, etc. i encourage you to embrace the challenge. you'll be a skilled pro in no time!

honestly, i don't know exactly, since i was originally completely finished with one mitt (which i later unravelled part of) and partially finished the other. i think i had about twenty more rows to go on the unfinished mitt when i decided to bind off. i hope that helps! Smiley
