At the start of christmas break, I made a bunch of neckwarmers and had a lot of leftover yarn.
What to do with it? Make striped arm warmers:
I made these some time ago during the later portion of christmas vacation. Ever since I got back to school, I’ve used them more on a daily basis than I thought I would. It’s mostly because I ride my bicycle to school. I hate when a cold draft comes up my jacket sleeve and ends up chilling my core during my less than 5 minute commute.
Because it’s 100% wool, it’s a smidge itchy. On the other hand, it gets the job done. And I love the stripes. I wanted to make thicker stripes but was never happy with how they turned out. I finally looked up a video where Eunny Jang demonstrates single stripes that don’t jog. I took the idea, ran with it, and was satisfied with the results.
What can I say? I love knitting and it’s endless possibilities.
