Well, I'd seen quite a few arm warmers that I'd liked the look of on Craftster. So when it came to me doing some leafleting in November/December in the UK (which means it's super cold!) I knew I had to have some - that would keep my arms/hands warm whilst leaving my fingers free to leaflet (they also had to be pretty) hence the choice of yarn - enjoy!

Close up so you can see the sparkles:-

Proof there's two(!)

Yet another shot!

Hope you like! (Excuse the state of my room!)

Yay arm warmers! Those look really warm and comfy. What kind of yarn did you use?

just some double knit that they had at my local store, when I saw the sparkles I was like "oh, I gotta get me some of that!" when i saw that it was also reduced in price it was like a double whammy. They're really warm plus they wash well Cheesy

Those are awesome!  I never thought of lengthening hand warmers to keep my arms warm, but "duh!"  What an awesome idea!

Those do look very snuggly and warm.  And also the shaping looks impeccable.  Nice job!
