I busted out the arm-warmers I got last spring from sock dreams. I love them so much. I really dig the sweater vest or 3/4 sleeve look—but then I get the chilly forearm thing. So, arm-warmers come in handy. Why I haven't knit these, I don't know. (I am still making progress on my sweater, by the way.) I am rockin' the look from the Shire today. That's cool, albeit rumpled. I didn't realize how much it looked like I slept in this shirt until I saw the photo. Awesome.
I am still not over my homemade undies trip, although I haven't made any yet saving these. Here's some patterns I found/discovered that I am super excited about.
-The most excellent Knicker Making Pattern/Kit by Gemma Jones. Please order this pattern—it is so rad, all hand drawn and naughty/sassy in the best possible way.
-An awesome (and free) looking knicker pattern at Burda Style
-Tap pant/boxer style also at Burda Style (I linked to this one before)
If you know of any great knitted arm-warmer patterns or knicker sewing patterns (free or to buy) feel free to leave it in the comments. My research skills today are horrible. I am recalling a book out there that even combines the two subjects, I think it's knitting spicy undergarments? I think it's even put out by my publisher—yes, here it is—Naughty Needles, which is out of stock. Does anyone have this book? I need to get my hiney over to Ravelry, pronto. Knitted knickers sounds so cool. Can I say knickers as an American without sounding pretentious? Pretty soon I will start spelling color with a "u". Watch out.
