jazz hands!

oh how i love armwarmers. they are super fast, easy and i know i'll use them, well probably use them. this was an interesting pattern because they were knit flat, i think next time (there will be a next time) i'll knit them in the round. but it was nice to practice my mattress stitch! i think this is the first time i actually got the hang of it, and i love it! now i just wanna seamseamseam.

i dyed the yarn myself, and this particular yarn base i've found takes color really lightly. everything is kind of pastely, which i don't hate. i'm thinking these will be a gift, for who, i'm not sure! :)

i'm going to try and make my f.o's more organized!

i have a couple more skeins i dyed along with this one, not sure what i have planned for those yet. one is an orangey/yellow and another is purpley/pink. i'm a dyein' fool lately!
