Arm Warmers? Fingerless Gloves? Wrist Sweaters? You Decide.

I am knitting arm warmers/fingerless gloves/wrist sweaters/multi-holed appendage tubes this weekend. They have the look of utility while not being truly necessary in a world in which both sweaters and gloves exist.

They make the muscles in my hands ache when I knit them.

But look! I am ever so toasty while wearing them. And they have the power to make me automatically cool.

If my knitting fixation continues, you may see ones much like these in an Etsy shop near you in the near future. These particular babies are all mine, though.

What would you call them?
