armwarmers: the perfect spring project?


up here in upstate ny, cool mornings give way to only slightly less cool afternoons. which is just as well. because i'm not quite ready to bare my still-winter-pale arms. most days, a light jacket is required. or, even better, light-as-a-feather armwarmers, knit out of whisper-soft be sweet extra-fine baby mohair. i'm thinking of a very fitted pair with slightly flared cuffs like this. if i knit an elastic enough top edge, they should stay put.

Cute! I have a pair that was given to me from Victorias Secret with light pink and dark pink stripes just like that. I love them, they're perfect for those cold but not frigid days.
