I'll have better pictures soon but here's my first completed arm warmer.






So...what do you think?

 Those are so awesome and snuggly looking!!! I love arm warmers, even in the warmer weather (crazy malls and restaurants crank the a/c way too high sometimes!) You did an awesome job, the color you picked is cute too! Happy knitting ^ ^

Thanks. The weather here has been indecisive lately, from rainy to sunny. So its nice to have something that's a bit smaller than a sweatshirt to carry around to keep me warm.

Wow - those are really sweet!!  What kind of yarn did you use?  Is there a pattern posted out there somewhere?

I have yet to work with patterns, so just off the top of my head really. Easy, cheap yarn too...acrylic Red Heart Soft Yarn...I like to use acrylic for washable items that I'm going to be wearing a lot, so I don't have to worry about hand washing and so on.

I like them because they are really long!!!!  The long arm warmers are always a favorite of mine.  They are soo adoreable when worn & nice and cozy too.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

Great armwarmers! I also love the color!

I have been looking for a simple, elegant design that looks great in a long armwarmer. It is always cold in my office and it is hard to type when your limbs are frozen!

I know you don't have a pattern, but a simple description of your process (estimates of # of stitches, approximate length/circumference, etc) would be very well received!

Again, they look great!
