I was planning to make you guess the purpose of these objects.
I thought it might not be terribly kind, so have given it away with the title.
It has suddenly become very chilly at 6am in the morning, and rather than buy a long sleeved cycling jersey, I made some arm warmers for myself - seeing as I had the machines all set up for wicking polyester after making the cycling caps.
Mine are the pink trimmed ones on the left.
They were admired. Strange, isn't it?
I made myself another pair to co-ordinate with my black, red and white team jersey.
A pointed request for a manly pair was issued - that would be the longer pair on the right. This was very easy sewing. I have turned one inside out so you can see the gripper elastic at the top.
I plan some slightly more tricky knit sewing next. Who am I kidding! Most knit sewing is tricky for me, but at least I can manage to sew a slightly gradiated tube and impress my cycling group. Some people are easily impressed.
