Handspun Yarns, Armwarmers, and a Scarf, OH MY!

What a better time to start making warm things than the start of summer? Oh wait. I think I'm just trying to make up for all of the crafting I didn't get done during the school year...
These are both merino wool:

I really like the top one, I was trying to get some bolder colors with my dyes. The second one reminds me of my wardrobe. It is all of the colors of the clothes I currently own.
I'm also going to take some nice pictures of these armwarmers and write up a pattern for y'all by the end of next week. Here they are in all of their glory:

Also made this week is this scarf I whipped up using scrap and recycled yarns. I think I'm going to make a few more of these as I've got a bunch of bulky yarn scraps lying around and taking up space. Do you like the colors? I think they are a bit manly for myself. I think this one is going to get put in the Etsy shop.

I've also started working out again (well I should say working out on a regular basis - it was hit and miss this semester) and I got a new video which is kicking my butt. I'm so sore!! I usually just do cardio, but this is a strength-cardio-ab circuit with no breaks. Ouch. Hopefully the soreness will wear off soon so I can stop walking around the house like an old lady. :)

The colors in that hand dyed yarn is to die for! You are such a talented dyer! I do plan to buy some yarn, I promise --- I've been drooling over it in the etsy shop!
