and what's this? why it's another fo. they're the hurry up spring armwarmers from stitch n bitch nation. i started these over christmas but stalled after coming to the thumb gusset on the first one. i finished up that one last week and was able to churn out the second one in only a couple of hours of tv watching last weekend. just remember that you have to reverse (meaning mirror image) the chart on the left armwarmer. it's somewhat confusing that they didn't just print the chart in the book, forcing you to go out and make your own copy of it. oh well. other than that they were fun and fast. oh i used noro kureyon in #88, the same as the book shows.
i am currently making a matching beanie with the leftovers from this project. yay for finishing stuff. i am going to try and be good and not start any new projects until i finish some old ones. so far i have:
bikini from stitch n bitch- bottom needs to be made and straps need to be put on the top
good ol' cabled scarf- i am over halfway finished with it
mom's squishy shawl- 3 more balls of yarn to go
brother's hat- i need to start and finish this but it should go fast
i am sure there's more that i am forgetting but hopefully i can actually finish some of these soon and then start some more projects. like socks. i need to make some socks.
tonight my roommate is making me and some friends a traditional german dinner (she grew up there) so i am looking forward to some schnitzel and strudel. ha that's fun to say.
