found the notes i took while i made these. narrowest part of wrist: 15 cm widest part of forearm: 23cm forearm length: 19cm 18 sts=10cm CO 28 sts. Join and work 2x2 ribbing for 10 rounds. Switch to stockinette and work even for 15 rows. Pm every 9, 9, 10 sts. Inc before marker every 4th row. (5x) work 10 more rows of ribbing. make another one. easy!
i made these armwarmers out of leftover yarn from a bag i made for a friend. they're knit in the round on size 7 dpns. i just did some measurements and gauge swatches and whatnot. they fit me a little better than they do elmo, but he was wearing them at the time i busted out the camera. http://tinypic.com/old5
well, i was rather hoping that there were more crafty kids up here in my direction that were just quiet internet geeks waiting to be invited out. that not being the case though, i would love to join you. if you need any help with organization or anything else, let me know. i'll even bus in some of my knitting students.
i live about 45 minutes north of atlanta in a city called Gainesville. it's very pretty up here, but the crafty spirit of others has failed to reach me. we have one decent yarn store, but the typical visitor there is in an age bracket that isn't interested in knitting a bikini. that said, if anyone lives out here in the boonies and would like to start a knitting and crafting group with me, i'd really love to have someone other than my friends whom i've taught to knit or sew to hang out with whilst crafting.
