The armwarmers are finished

It's been really overcast in Michigan lately. Overcast in the sky means overcast in my outlook. I hvae been very, very slowly knitting a pair of armwarmers. Here's a progress shot from last week that I never posted:

The yarn is beautiful and not as scratchy as I originally thought (or at least I'm getting used to scratchy yarn). Here they are in their mismatched, hobo-esque glory:

I love them and wear them all the time. They're beautiful.

Pattern: Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers from Stitch 'n' Bitch Nation
Yarn: Noro Kureyon color 128 (2 half-balls)
Needles: size 7 dpns (next time, I'll go down a size so they fit my tiny arms better)
Notes: I did 6 rows of ribbing at the bottom and 4 at the top. I increased an extra set of stitches in the thumb gusset and increased another stitch at the end of the first thumb round to get an even amount for ribbing.
