Leg Warmer Progress


So here is the start of my leg warmers, I love the way they are coming out. I realized that because I did the pattern lighter than the base color it may be a little difficult to see, but I still like it. But I have hit a snag, well, I foresee the snag coming - I don't have enough brown yarn.

I spun the brown from a mix of CMV and alpaca wool - a total of about three ounces. So I may need to journey out to the fiber farm to buy some more, but keep in mind my goal is to have these done by February 25 at the absolute latest!

My current plan is to knit until I am out of yarn, and just pray I don't run out of the blue and white - think of it like the flour pot in Gospels, I'll just keep makin' cakes. Once these leg warmers are completed they will be my second (French Press Cozy is the first) project done from spinning to knitting - how rewarding! I am very much looking forward to wearing them too, even though it has been warmer lately (in the 30's).

If you have any roving lying around in these colors feel free to make me an offer!

Don't forget to respond to the shopping poll! Have a great day!

  2. Very nice! It's funny to think the leg warmers are coming back- I used to wear them as a kid! They are cute though!
