I'm still a newbie knitter, but I knit these warmers for my boyfriend and some mittens for me.


The armwarmers still need thumbs, i think, but I wanted to get them done before his birthday. He likes them well enough, I think, but they are pretty skinny, even for him... He's a messenger and likes to wear cut off soccer socks on his arms when the weather is in-between cold and mild.




I made the cuffs on my mittens super long because the sleeves on all of my coats are just too short. They work really well.

Thank you thank you!! The wool for the armwarmers is Noro (Silk Garden), of course. I was going to make the "Hurry up Spring" armwarmers from SnB Nation, but again, I was rushed to try to get them done before my boyf's birthday, so it was just straight up stockinette.

That wool is amazing. Even knitting with it was more fun, because it was so good to touch, and it gave me an excuse to really inspect the various colours. Knitting those warmers made me very happy. (and not only because of who I was knitting them for!!).

Love the armwarmers!  I've seen ones at Target that are the same shape (that is, thumbholes, but no thumbs) so I totally think they work w/o them.
