Just In The Nick of Time

While still very sunny and dry, the temperatures took a huge dive this weekend. I am not even sure the high was 60'F today. I finished Willow's legwarmers tonight as she and Andrew were reading together - and as soon as they were off the needles she pulled them on. And then promptly requested another pair.

Willow's legwarmers

And a close up:

Legwarmers close up

The Particulars:

Yarn: TLC Essentials in denim blues
Needles: Size 6 DPNs. (I wish I had a circular small enough to handle only 40 stitches!)
From start to finish: Maybe 3 hours altogether? It's a 14" tube with 10 rows of 1X1 ribbing on either end.

When did the 80's flashback start??

Seriously though - they look great!

Adorable! It's like she went to sleep with one legwarmer on and woke up with two!

Cute! Guess she's wanting some in every color now ;) Gosh..would a 6 x 16" be too much? Wonder if they make a 6 x 12 or could you MLoop it? Look forward to the next pair!
