 Shocked Is that lion brand boucle in "Sorbet"? That yarn is so pretty! I never thought of using that stuff for arm warmers, but they look like they came out great! Are they comfy?

I  think that was the "flavor/ color"  LOL I have a bunch of that in various shades so not real sure which this was.  there were 2 diferrent shades mixed in just one main color.
yes very  comfy! I am glad I did it.  the hat matches really well. now Iwill make the scarf!  as my daughter begs me to never wear these out in public  she told me they are not cool for moms!  LOL she doesn't like the hat  either LOL

I e-wrapped  for a few rows the length of my arm  (skinny people may not need the extra  length there. I have thick arms)..  then e-wrapped a long flat piece  until it was long enough to wrap around my fat arm and hand.  I loosely wove a loose yarn end thru the loops on the pegs and removed them from loom. then sewed the flat piece together on the long ends  leaving a  hole for my thumb.   
as you can tell I completely winged it!
