I finally got a good shot of my finished Koigu Cashmere armwarmers! These turned out amazingly well, so well that I'm seriously considering making another pair. They're really really warm and functional, and perfect for fall weather. If it gets much colder to quickly they won't be getting much wear, but I'm thoroughly enjoying them now! I actually wore them at Stitches almost the entire weekend, so if you stopped by the booth you got a sneak peek of them already.
They were super quick to knit and the pattern is really great. I definitely recommend them if you're looking for cute accessories, or they would be a great gift!
