Fingerless Armwarmers

I needed a gift, so I decided to make armwarmers as the person they are for lives in a cold winter climate. I had this beautiful Cascade 128 yarn in a lovely gray shade. I improvised as I went along. I wanted something simple, yet interesting, so when I got to the wrists, I decided to add some more ribbing. I think they turned out just right. You can wear them over your elbow,
or pushed down.
Thanks to my lovely daughter for modeling them for me.

I knitted this shawl from Lion Brand Cotton Ease for a Lion Brand Swap. It was so easy and fun to knit, and I love the color. I think it turned out lovely.
My beautiful daughter, Miakoda was sweet enough to model for me.
The pattern came from the Spring/Summer issue of Vogue Knitting.
I think I will knit one for myself for the fall.
These Handwarmers were knit for the same swap. I knitted them from Red Heart Eco-Ways Bamboo Wool, from a pattern in Jane Austen Knits 2011. I changed the picot edging on the pattern, because I didn't like the way the edging looked. I made a smaller picot edging, it seemed much neater to me.
Once again my lovely daughter, Miakoda modeled for me.
