For Elven Ballet Dancers

I usually avoid three-quarter length sleeves like the plague, because my arms get too cold in the office. However, I broke my rule for two cute jackets this year, and I’ve been freezing in the air conditioning. I dug out the ballet armwarmers that Costume Conspirator gave me years ago – they’re connected , so it’s sort of like a sweater without the torso, but I just slip on both arms and leave the extra bit lying across my lap. It finally occurred to me that I could get new arm warmers that were less tangly.

FourthBreakfast forwarded an etsy link to me for TheJaneVictoria, who makes gorgeous knits with delicious names like Caladhiel Oronar Armwarmers. The regular price for custom warmers is $65, but these were pre-made for $20, so I snapped them up. Perhaps a bit grand for the office, but I’m looking forward to trying them out.
