Gauntlets
[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 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*.

Very cool! I love them! I wear fingerless gloves, but never as long as your gauntlet, of course, I'm also no longer ahem...a teenager :rofling: I do really love them & know that your daughter appreciates them

Very nice. I made myself some fingerless gloves and then didn't like what I did. These are really nice!

Looks good! Here's a pattern for one from Knitty Gritty. There's littel video to show you how to do stuff if you get stumped.
