Hurry Up Spring!

Ah, couldn't you guess? Had to have the Stitch 'N Bitch Nation's Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers of course! ;)
I knit them with the #88 colorway, as you see it in the book (pic#1), but my yarn was obviously upside down on the skein. Hmm.


I like how it turned out, but I'm not as psyched about them as I used to be. I made some quite obvious mistakes, and for some reason, I just can't get these images of oil drum fires, shopping karts and cardboard boxes out of my head as soon as I put it on.

Alrighty, a poll it is. Does this look like the hand of a bum?

Yes! It sure does! :-)

Stop skiving off and get back to your thesis! you can use my mantra if you like 'i will make it, i will make it, i will make it... ;-)

I have to say I think the armwarmers look nice and now I want to make some too.

Take care

Haha, hand of a bum. I have a mental picture of an arse with hands sticking out of the cheeks now! *chuckles*
They look great! I want some now too!

(PS: I'm always concentrating on not looking too much like a moron to remember to smile in photos! lol)
