What happened with that ball of yarn

I knitted several pairs of arm warmers for the shop at the end of last year, but never got round to knitting one for myself. But now!
I had such a cold last week that it took me all week to knit the first one. The second one hopped on and off the needles in one day, last weekend after breakfast. And I haven’t really taken them off since (thank goodness this weather bears with me).
I made the absolute most of the yarn. See that tiny yellow squiggle up there? That was the leftover bit.
The yarn is a chunky merino superwash, cleverly dyed by Daisy. Just how I imagined it.

    They look awesome! Gradient dyed is my favorite these days. And they look very very warm.
