Birthday present for my b/f's sister (and my friend too). I tested the length on myself and discovered I have considerably shorter arms than her (they were intended to be full arm length) but still they turned out pretty good. It's still cold enough here to warrant wearing them all the time.

I have a friend that would love them... Did you just use a pattern for a sweater arm or for wrist warmers and then just kept going?

I am not going to send this picture to my friend.  She will want them immediately!

I found a pattern somewhere for HDC wristwarmers but I kinda didn't like it and just made up my own. It was harder than I thought as I had to write down everything as I went so they'd be symmetrical.
I was just glad to use up a bit of my huge mohair yarn stash, it was starting to grow on its own I reckon. Cheesy
