the brooklyn handspun armwarmers are done and the pattern is up. it’s also available as a ravelry download. i liked knitting these more than i thought i would, actually. i was really excited until i had the yarn in my hands and i realized i actually had to make something pretty with it and then i got all overwhelmed and frazzled. the whole thing took about four days– playing with the yarn and trying out a bunch of patterns (yeah that took a whole day), writing the pattern as i knit the first mitt (two days), and then knitting the second mitt off the pattern, editing it as i went (last day). i figure if it took four days to write up and test the pattern, it could probably be knit in two. i have a ton of yarn left so maybe i’ll knit a pair in medium and see if anyone on etsy wants them.
the ones in all the sample photo are size small, by the way– but i’m pretty sure most humans will fall into the medium/large on this pattern. i still wear childrens’ gloves and watches.
i’d love to hear comments on these. it’s my first arm warmer design so i’m pretty proud– hopefully not delusional.
ps. yes, i did change the title from “space monkey” to “how now space cow”– i’m not really sure why……
EDIT: holy crap batman! what are the chances that this lolcat would show up in my google reader TODAY? it must be a sign. a sign of what? i dunno yet. but i’ll let you know.
while i’m here i may as well mention that you can now purchase my I ❤ NY and I Love Love! hat patterns at knitty city in new york. squee!
