Arm Warmers

I made these with one skein each of Smile yarn. I used double-pointed size 11 needles. I cast on 20 stitches, worked in K2 P2 ribbing for a few inches, then just knitted in the round for the rest. For the thumbs I put 4 stitches on a stitch holder, then on the next round added four stitches. The plan was to go back and knit the thumb, but for some reason I crocheted the thumbs instead. Looking back, I'm not sure what my reasoning for that was...but it still worked out.
I finished my lovely arm warmers just in time for spring, and have yet to wear them out of the house. But I suppose I have them to look forward to next year!
