Just finished my second arm warmers on the round loom. Used a different stitch and they weren't as tight as the first one. Used the e-wrap instead of the knit stitch, but I read that if you e-wrapped all the pegs first, you would get a slight twist in the pattern, but it would work up faster. Next one I will e-wrap as I go. But that is how you learn.

Very nice--can you share the pattern
Still tweaking the pattern, but on the smallest loom(mine is green) e-wrap cast on, then K1, P1 rib for 12 rows, then EWK for 20 rows, K 4 rows, for the thumb hole: K pegs 1-23: K peg 24, wrapping the yarn behind it, the K in the opposite direction back to peg 1, turn back to peg 24, do this 6 times(1-23: 24-2:1-23: 24-2: 1-23: 24-2) K pegs 1 to 24 rows, then K1, P1 rib for 5 rows. Bind off. Hope that makes sense. I just finished another one changing the number of rows and EWK each peg one at a time instead of EW all the way around, then slipping the bottom stitch over.

I see the twist in your stitches and love the colors on this pair. I wouldn't worry that they don't fit quite as tightly. I've found some of the young women in my life like the looser, bulkier look and feel.

The boot toppers are Fantastic! I've had requests for some of these but haven't started browsing for patterns yet. They really are a great idea. :idea:

I didn't care for the twisted stitch, so instead of e wrapping left to right, I e-wrap right to left and I get a stitch that looks more like a knit stitch.
Love your arm warmers!!!!!!

I love the boot toppers! I know nothing about a loom or using one to knit, but I would love a pattern (regular knitting) for the boot toppers! Beautiful! How is the embellishment removed?

I sewed a snap on to the embellishment so you just unsnap it and go without or add a different one to the topper I have couple of different lets call them collars
