serious problem.

I'm in the midst of a serious problem.
Its name is Arm Warmers.

Serious because I'm ridiculously obsessed. And it's becoming a problem. I love these things and I feel like no one really gets them (or me, really, sigh, 'nother day, 'nother topic).

Ok. Here's how this little nonsense got started.
I saw the arm warmers in a little documentary that I recently viewed.
Its name is Twilight.
Actually New Moon, if we're being specific.

pic from imdb -- where else?

Alice was wearing them and I momentarily forgot who Edward was. I was that in love. I feel comfortable going to that level of comparison that quickly. It seems rash. Maybe too far. But I need you to understand the level that this was instantly taken to.

And the hunt began.
Apparently I am more nester than hunter. I stunk at finding them.
Enter: My Mother-in-Law. That little gem is a fashion huntress. She is a true shopping inspiration. She surprised me with pair number one: lime green, cashmere, fabulous.

And I found pair number two on my very own: cable knit, target, my kind of price.

I have found so many more at Oh, Chuck needs to put the bank accounts on lock down and pray for spring to come ealier.

I love them something fierce.
Say what will. Laugh until you try them. Then email me an apology.


  1. Susie (you kinda know me, I'm a friend of Nan's I think we met a few times, ha!)... I TOTALLY have a pair, and got them like 3 years ago when I was living in Bellingham...I still wear them and people look at me weird, but I don't care, they're AHmazing...and they're American them, i'm sure you could find them on ebay! haha

  2. I can make you some. Probably for a lot cheaper than you could buy them too. =)

  3. First off, anything Alice wears, I wear. Cuz she's my fav! Second, a parent and her child totally knitted me a pair for Xmas. They are kind of rainbow colors, but I wear them in the car when I drive to keep warmin the morning. I didn't know they had a cool name - I thought they kind of looked "homeless" style. Who knew I was fashion forward in the car. :P

  4. um....i WANT some. SOOOO cute!

  5. Judy has been knitting me arm warmers since 2002-for my ellensburg winters. They are amazing!

  6. those ones you posted from booby (haha) creations are the Alice ones. How can Chuck NOT support that purchase?

  7. I will say it again, I am so glad you are my daughter in law. You make me laugh every time I read your blog. I may just have to find my own pair now!! MIL

  8. Hey Susie ~ so I'll confess now... I'm totally one of your blog stalkers... I always get a good laugh from you! :) Anyway, I saw this entry and you should check out the pair I crocheted a few months ago in my photos on Facebook... the album is called "Yarny Things" and it's got a few of my favorite things I've made... The arm warmers I have pictured were my first pair, so I'll get better as I do more. I love to crochet and knit! It's a problem... our house has been overtaken by yarn! Jason and I miss you guys!


  9. Ummm, I think they should be called wrist warmers. just saying. I mean they cover less than 25% of the "arm" and they even are on the hand, which is not a part of the arm, just attached. just saying. but I love them anyways.

  10. the other thought that crossed my mind...they kind of look inspired by a Trainer Tom tape job. If thats the case, then I did have many arm warmers in the gymnastic era of my life. :)

  11. I am shocked at the number of you who own these. Where have you been while I've been being laughed at for weeks? Karen? Libby? Deitra? Kellee? MIL? People. I need you.

    Caryn. Feel free to make me some. If they are nautical themed, I will send them back :)

    Emy. My birthday is March 13. Write that down.

    Lindsey. Trainer Tom reference. Epic.

    Mollie. I will wear them tomorrow. On our first date.


Tell me about it. Oh and thanks for validating my life.
