right now :: arm warmers

armwarmers1Even though it’s Spring and we’re busier by the hour…

Even though I am doggedly holding on to my love of rectangular garter stitch knitting…

Even though the weather is balmy now…

I am pleased with these arm warmers, complete at last.

Ready for blackberry winter.armwarmers2

Using simple, beautiful worsted merino wool, cast 80 stitches onto long skinny needles, and work with the colors you liked until it is about six inches wide (depending on the thickness of you arm).  Sew long sides together in something resembling a mattress stitch, with a thumb-hole left just where you want it – or maybe no thumb-hole at all.  Good easy fun.
