WiP: Snowball's Chance in Hell

Dear Shayne,

Do you remember this post back in October (yikes!) when I bought yarn for these sweet-ass armwarmers?

Well, after hemming and hawing and various stallings, I finally started them this month! I'm not quite finished with the first one, but I'm so excited, I just had to share:
Snowball's Chance in Hell

(Good God -- looking at the photo I realize that my arm color almost matches the white door behind me! Ack, I'm pale!)

So I still have to finish making that last motif (the skull) and then bind off. I guess I could have waited another day to post the photo when it was done, but... well, I was excited. Look how cool that thing is! Yeah!

Meanwhile, this has been a somewhat arduous project and I imagine that the second one will be tougher to slog through than the first... I hope that the name "Snowball's Chance in Hell" is not an indicator of my likelihood of finishing these.

Oh, yeah -- and even if I do finish them in a timely fashion, it will be just in time for... summer! Yay! Guess it's time for that trip to the Southern Hemisphere!

These are so cute! If you don't finish them until summer, you'll have something to look forward to next winter - wearing these!
