My knee sock was dying, but I love it too much to let it go. Thus I decided to make an arm warmer. It was a little big for my wrist, and I didn't like the way it bunched up when I hemmed it, so I laced a ribbon around and tied it in a bow.  Grin

It was still a little big for my wrist, so I decided to wear it higher up on my arm than conventionally done (as far as I know).

Hope you like it!





One of these days I'm going to try some fray check on it to make sure it doesn't undo all my work.

A girl and her knee sock: a true love story suitable for all ages.

sock? singular? just one sock? a matchless sock? a sad, lonely, widowed sock?

Well, oddly enough, the other one is still in decent condition. I'm considering wearing the sock and the arm warmer on opposite sides (ie: sock on left foot, arm warmer on right arm.)

That is so cute .. Smiley

It reminds me of a sexy tuby grip , those tight bandages you wear when you get a sprain.

Do that. Totally do that. That's great. I love the elbow warmer...my knee-high socks are dying (*cries*) so I might have to try that. Thanks for the idea!
