Thanks for the nice comments, I'm glad you like the arm warmers,(and my blog)!
The pattern is called 'Hurry up spring armwarmers' it's by Renee Rigdon, and is in the book 'Stitch & Bitch Nation'. It's a great quick project, I really was surprised how quick they both turned out.
The pattern calls for; Noro Kureyon, I had Noro wool sent to me, it's a silk, kidMohair, lambswool mix. It's lovely to work with and the colour change is great. I have some left over, I'm going to make a little purse to keep my keys in to go with the armwarmers, I'll try and use the cable pattern that goes up the middle of the arm warmers.
I recommend making these up, quick and easy, even if your a DPN virgin like I was.
