My sister came over and spent the night Wednesday and, naturally, forgot something when she left for work Thursday morning: her arm warmers.
I'll try not to comment on the print, and will stick to the torn-down look of the things... 'That poor girl,' I thought, 'those things won't keep you warm! You're better off wrapping your arms in old newspapers! Only that wouldn't be as practical, because newspapers won't stay up properly.'
My mind wanders so easily.
Anyway, after a brief foray into designing a clothing line made out of old newspapers in my head, including a very uncomfortable-looking set of underwear (like I said, my mind wanders very easily) I decided that she deserved nice, toasty arms, and made her a new pair.
They're really simple, back-loop only dc's for 15 rows and stitched up while leaving a hole for the thumb, armwarmers with a cute little ribbon to adorn them with. And yes, that ribbon is fraying like whoa. They're also just weaved in and out between stitches so she can take them out if she wants (and, knowing my sister, she will). She was happy, I was distracted for a couple of hours, everybody wins!
Well, except my thesis, of course.
