The quickest armwarmers in the west

It rained today in San Diego and I wished I had armwarmers with me so badly. These ones are from the book Speed Knitting by Kris Percival, and speedy is right. I made the first pair for my sister and it only took me a lonely afternoon in front of the television to whip these up.  I seriously adore this book. As proof, I’ve had it checked out from the library since October and I fear the day when they no longer let me renew it. If you are looking for a fast gift for a friend, look no further.

Did I mention that I am learning to crochet? I am definitely not speedy. I can make a beautiful chain, but after that I’m toast. Thank goodness for You Tube videos. Who are those fools that saying crochet is easier? Speak now or forever hold your peace…..
