Finished Object: Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers

My armwarmers... they'll probably be on their way to Maine, to my brother. Yes, they're fraternal, but I like them that way. They're unique that way(and only used one ball of Kureyon... mmmmm Kureyon). These were my first foray into cables. My second pair, which I'll post later, I used another repeat of the cables. I use them to shield my arms from the sun as I drive to work. Being "generic white people" -- German, Irish, English, with a touch of Cherokee -- I burn easily. Mostly German (my father's parents came from Germany to the US), then Irish (my mother's mother's parents came from Ireland -- she was a Catholic, he was a Protestant -- you can see the issue there), and then English/Cherokee (mom's dad's grandmother was full-blooded Cherokee, the rest of the ancestors were English).

They turned out cute, and I think my brother can use them more than I (especially since I already have a pair). :)

Deep inside, I'm saying-- aren't all gifts for brothers, fraternal? I'll admit it, that's a bad word joke! The armwarmers turned out great, and
I'm sure you're brother will appreciate them.

In case you haven't noticed, I am now offically Your Blogstalker. You must say that with an Evil Grin.
