These Armwarmers are made from my own pattern (see sidebar). This time I’m using Knitpicks Brava Worsted and 4.5 mm dpns because I want them a bit snugger. They are for a new friend with slim arms and I notice that when I wear the originals (which I have been doing a lot lately) they are a little baggy around my hand.
The “blending” of one colour into another is quite random. I think I like it. I hope my friend does. I lengthened the ribbing around the hand to cover more of the knuckles. I love wearing my old pair as I have some t shirts that have three quarter length sleeves and these cover my forearms beautifully. I even kept them on indoors last weekend when I had a short sleeved cardigan over a three quarter sleeve t shirt and I was chilly.
So, halfway there. One done, one to go. Planning to give these to the intended recipient early next week so must carry on knitting.
