Let the Project Spectrum commence

*Please Mum, yarn is sooooo boring!!! Bring on the cat nip!*

Without me :( I have one skein of pink hand spun yarn that I got for christmas. I decided I was going to make hand warmers or arm warmers with it, that way I can knit in the car with them on *I'm ALWAYS FREEZING!!!!* I don't have a pattern except for the one from weekend knitting. Its very plain though and I wanted something more like SNB hurry up spring arm warmers. seen here. I started swatching and trying out a few rounds to see what it would be like. I'm thinking that this yarn is just a bit too thick for what I want to do with it. Soooooooooooooo I'm at a loss. I really have no idea what to make with it. I don't need any more hats or scarves, heaven knows I have enough! So any suggestions would be appreciated on what I could do with this lovely skein! In the meantime I guess I'll start to frog my cable sock back to the ribbing and try again. Hope the rest of you are having more luck than me!

Bummer! How about this? (There's a link to the pattern below the picture.)

I'm surprised you're not getting a lot more cat action with that tempting yarn there!

What gauge are you getting? And how many yards is it? I love the sweater from the adorable tots book!

Chris - That was the original pattern I wanted to do but with this yarn it turns out way to large for my tiny wrists, I want a snug fit. Sockies however is just too old to even care for yarn lol that would be taking precious sleep time away.

Donna- I'm getting 5 stitches per inch in knit 2 purl 2 ribbing. I have 162 yards *4.5oz* in this colour.
