I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>
I finished Al's legwarmers on Thanksgiving morning. You see Al did ALL the cooking at our house. I just had to clean and help clean up after. So I had time to finish her legwarmers. They made me feel like dancing!
I used Dream in Color for the raspberry main color and used Liberty Wool Classic Elite for the Fair Isle. I wish both legs matched but that is not how the yarn knit up. I think they came out whimsical and wonderful. I made up a pattern.
I cast on 64 stitches and ribbed awhile. Then I found a fair isle pattern that was made up of a 16 stitch repeat and focused for a bit. Fair Isle requires focus, but I do so love the results. Also, because the top part is fair isle, the leggings hug there and won't fall down. Next I did a few stripes and finished them up plain in stockinette in the round. She loved them. They will keep her warm and fuzzy as our temps are really dropping here now.
I need more dances in my life I think. I worry too much. Worry less, dance more.....
