Hi y'all, this is another newbie post! This place sure rocks out, you're all most creative and I'm getting very inspired! These armwarmers were my first knitting project beyond a garter stitch scarf. I knitted them in the round on size 2.5 needles with red and black... wool. (Can't remember the brand! It was 8 ply though.) I cast on 40 stitches to start off.

 I did make two ;-) but it's kinda warm here in Australia so I don't get to wear them that often. I'm trying to make one of the critter cozies at the moment but it's looking a bit scary in a lopsided way! We'll see how it goes.

cheers,
V. Smiley

That's a damn nice arm warmer there. My first branch out into my own design was an arm warmer too. I made it out of some self patterning yarn by Regia. Here's a link to it so you can see what it's like

They came out really cool. I actually included a little hold for my thumb by working about an inch in the round, then 1.75" back and forth, then continued in the rown to the end. I sewed elastic at the top to keep it from falling down too  Smiley
Anyway, it really is a wonderful job you did, especially for a first time.

Hello!
I swear I'm not stalking if you're the girl from the spinning list on lj, but I'm from australia too and I'm pleased to see another Aussie <-- is a dork.
I have a pattern for wristwarmers which has been published in this seasons creative knitting magazine! It is an ace magazine and I'm excited to have it published, and I just thought I'd let you know, in case you were interested.
I scanned it here:http://members.ozemail.com.au/~astrogrrrl/lj/wristiscan.jpg
