I've been wanting a pair of armwarmers for awhile now. I have also been meaning to try out cables. What to do? Make a pair of Irish Hiking Armwarmers. I followed the pattern (http://irishhikingknitalong.blogspot.com/2004/12/irish-hiking-wrist-warmers.html) except I did a few more repeats so that it came up to my elbowish. I like them (but a friend told me it looked like a cast to him.)

Ah well.

So I made the matching scarf awhile ago and never got around to posting a picture:

It makes me sad that within a day of finishing the scarf, I lost the armwarmers. I'm still hoping that they'll turn up at my university's lost and found.

If casts could only BE so stylish! Love them and the color too!

I know a thing or two about having a cast (unfortunately), but that looks waaay better and I am positive it is much more comfortable.  I love the color and the look.  After I finish the couple of projects I am working on, I want to do armwarmers next.

Armwarmers are great - you get to make use of your Spring/Summer wardrobe in the middle of winter - lol

I know how you feel about losing your knit things. i'm a pro at losing things. its hard when you are wearing more than one knitted winter wear item, becuase if you ever go inside, you take them off, and therefore have the possibility to lose it! so far though, most knitted things i've lost have turned up, all except a hat I dropped in a huge mall, and had no idea which store I dropped it in. yikes! I hope you find it! also, I just LOVE irish hiking anything, especially the armwarmers.

 I also hate when people say something weird like " it looks like a cast". that's when you say "no, actually casts look like armwarmers! so there!" sometime people make connections  in their brain when they see someone wearing a fashion item that is not 100 percent mainstream. like if someone says that a certain pattern " looks like their grandma". cuase yeah, alot of things grandmas wear can acutally look awesome when they are updated and worn by a hip person, you know?
