wip: armfirst for warmers

this is my latest for-me project. the first is actually almost finished, now, but these are the photos that i took last night.

yarn is lotus yarns in headfirst for halos. pattern is the unnamed armwarmer pattern by pixie j. purl (no relation).

here's how they've progressed:





they'll cover up my wrist tattoo, but it's totally worth it. aren't they looking GREAT? i'm just finishing the thumb gusset now, so i'll have the first one done tonight. the second one might have to wait until after my hogwarts sweaters are done... we'll see. they knit up REALLY fast, and don't use a lot of yarn... i'll have enough left to make a pair of socks out of this yarn, too, which is AWESOME.

i highly recommend this pattern. it's so nice... a good pattern for someone who wants to try sock yarn but is afraid to try turning a heel so soon. and so warm and pretty...

and when we go don't blame us
we'll let the fire just bathe us
you made us all so famous
we'll never let you go
