Similar to the sweater and scarf I have at work, I also have armwarmers there. On really cold days in the office, if I wear the sweater and the scarf. (I find that you lose a lot of heat through a bare neck. I'm more likely to wear a scarf than a neck at home during the winter.) On semi cold days, I wear the sweater. On only sort of chilly days, I wear the armwarmers. I love arm warmers. They might not be haught cuture, but whatever. They are knitted and they are cool.
It was a great surprise when Anna brought me these. They aren't knitted, but they are still cool! And I'm totally going to wear them. If only I could read the Japanese.
I've also started on that new project. The off white cardigan. I think it's going pretty well. It's pretty easy so far. There's some detailing with knitting/purling on the wrong side, but for the most part it's just stockinette stitch. I'm half done the back, and I'll post a picture once I'm done that part.
