The only trouble with things going smoothly is that it doesn't make for very exciting blog fodder. The most "exciting" thing about this project was when I thought I started the second thumb gusset half a repeat higher than I started it on the first one, but I was wrong about that and didn't even have to rip out to realize it.
Pattern: Green Cabled Arm Warmers by Elizabeth Martin, Yarn: Tosh Sock in the Tart colorway, Needles: 2.75mm
I'm not sure if I followed the pattern or not. Once I charted the written out cable pattern, I changed the cast-on number and never looked at the pattern again. I did eight repeats of the cable and then did a generic thumb gusset until I thought it looked big enough and finished off the hand however I pleased. All in all I think they turned out just fine. I think they look kinda cool all scrunched up, too.
My sister wanted slouchy arm warmers, so hopefully these fit the bill.
Wow, I must be hungry or tired, because my brain is really not functioning right now. How about some nature photos to finish things off? I snuck up on a groundhog this afternoon and snapped some pictures of him.
and in the half hour that I sat still in the sun as a spider built a web on my hand, I was surrounded by a whole flock of beautiful dragonflies. (Don't look at the water. It's super gross and I feel bad for all the bluegills that have to live in it.)
and here are some flowers, which were not the source of the sweet smell I was looking for. In fact, they smelled kinda bad.
And with that, I'm going to go find some food.
