[color=violet] I looked everywhere for gauntlets/armwarmers that I liked, that were quick and easy to knit AND that my daughter thought were 'cool'. After days and days I gave up and designed my own. This is a pic of the finished right arm. http://static.flickr.com/26/65038771_d731112f0b.jpg
I'm not sure if you can see my hand on the end of that pic, but it's waving 'hello' to all my new knittin' friends. The gauntlet appears sort of bulky, but it is pretty taut against my arm. I'm about ½ way through another gauntlet/armwarmer design and I'll post that one when I get it done!
*sorry if I linked the pic incorrectly, I'm new to this whole linkin' pictures thing*.
