striped armwarmersIt’s the perfect time of year for knitting and wearing arm warmers or fingerless gloves (I had mine on just the other day) and this pattern from Yarnologue is a great quick, easy and colorful choice.

Worked in the round in two colors of gorgeous Mirasol yarn, you don’t even have to cut the yarn as you work, just weave it up the side.

This yarn is a beauty: a blend of llama, wool and angora. Of course you could use something else you have lying around if you want, or make this a stash-busting project by working in a series of stripes. You could make them match by dividing up your odd balls or go wild and make them out of completely different colors.

Of course it’s totally appropriate for this time of year that they happen to be orange and white…

    Hey, that’s me! :-D

    There was such demand for the pattern I had to get it posted before I had finished knitting.

    Must have been a lot of cold arms out there that day.

    If you don’t like double points you can knit it on two circulars, using magic loop, or two at a time on two circs.
