I wanted to make these armwarmers ever since picking up SnBN and finally got them done a couple weeks ago.  I love the color, they are definitely spring-y.  This was a super fun project, small enough to finish in a reasonable time, but with enough challenge to keep it interesting.  Cables are so cool!

Here's the left one in action...had to take the picture with my right.  Tongue

Beautiful! These are so pretty. I'm jealous of your cable-ness. Smiley

Love the spring theme colors on yours!  Grin I just finished mine, using Noro Kureyon #90.  The cables don't show up so well because the glove is kind of dark, but I really love the colors!  The pattern gives a really nice texture.
Anyway, I'm so glad I made them!  They're really warm and nice to wear at the computer or driving.  I live near Seattle so they'll be good to wear...we won't be seeing the sun for another couple of months!
Sorry for the Cell Phone quality pics!

Go Seahawks!

I made some too Smiley I love the color, and they were such a quick knit.

Edited to add: I was able to get away with only 1 ball of Noro as opposed to the two that the book called for. Score!

I made some too! But no pic. But I want to warn those with small hands like me that these might be a bit long for you... mine cover up my baby finger - no typing in them! But they're nice and cozy for reading at the bus stop.

Yeah, I made mine according to the pattern, and the top part went waaay over my pinkie. I ripped out a little, and now they're perfect.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

I used color #170 in Noro Kureyon. I wear these all the time, they're so pretty!

Was it hard to ge tthe pattern to work with only one skein?  I really want to make these and buying one skein instead of two would be awesome.
