I named these “Early Labour Armwarmers” because the yarn colours are so excited, they might just induce labour before I’m ready.

It’s an easy pattern, and despite the fact that it’s ribbing, is very easy to follow. I did about ten rows the first night and finished the gloves over the next two days. I’ve since cast on for the second glove and am five rows in.

It’s very soft and I just LOVE how intense the colours are. It kind of reminds me of wildberry skittles.

This second glove has been a serious pain in the ass. I’ve had to frog at least a dozen rows twice because I’m captain no attention span and queen poor impulse control.

In spite of this, I think I might be able to at least come close to finishing this puppy tonight, and if not tonight, then tomorrow.

Ideally, I’d like to have them ready to wear to Panera on Monday.

Finished the armwarmers later that day. They’re super awesome :)

New picture is uploaded. The wedding ring is absent because my pregnancy has decided that a gold allergy was in order… but at least the armwarmers are fabulous enough to draw away from the lack of bling. ;)
