Cash Iroha Handwarmers

Cash Iroha Handwarmers

Here are the finished handwarmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Kaelen is modeling them for me so they are a bit big on her. I used Noro Cash Iroha, the yarn called for, in brown. I have already taken them out and put them to good use, very nice and warm, although they did fuzz up a bit. I did pay careful attention to my yarn usage, and did my best to use up every bit of the skein, so I got as much extra length as I could.

And here are some of my thoughts on the yarn. When I first bought it, I thought it was breath takingly gorgeous, as I hand wound it into a skein I dreamt about using it for a sweater one day, it was so lovely, even knitting it up was a wonderfully pleasant experience, but I've had my fix now. I don't know why, but I am no longer infatuated with the yarn, I'm satisfied with the handwarmers. Weird, huh.
