Warm Me Up

In an attempt to look like the backcover of LMKG, I present my recently finished legwarmers! I finished these last week and just haven't had any time to post. I've been wearing these lots around the house since its been super cold here in Boston lately. In all reality though, I would never knit these again. They took me forever since I never really sat down and gave them a chunk of time. They were also EXTREMELY boring to knit... Perhaps I worstened my pain by using a a dk weight yarn and a size smaller needle?!




Pattern: Legwarmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Uruguay DK #08 and Kidsilk Haze #592.
Measurements: 21" long
Started: January 9, 2006
Finished: February 20, 2006
Other Details: I used a dk weight yarn instead of worsted. Therefore, I went down to a US7 instead of a US8. I also cast on less stitches since I have little legs (42 rather than 46). Lastly, I didn't make these the full length since I though 20" was plenty!

I may have to get over my 80's bias towards legwarmers. They would be perfect to wear around the apartment during these chilly days.

I really need to get some yarn and knit those. I've wanted a pair since last winter! They look great and I'm glad you're wearing them. By the way, still no yarn. :(
