I have turned a corner with my knitting and am happily, confidently using double-pointed needles. I am knitting socks for Ben! These legwarmers for Phoebe were key.
I actually knit it into a garter stitch scarf for my husband at one point, but it wasn't a success, so I ripped it out and wound it back up into a ball. But these legwarmers are a success!
I measured Phoebe's legs and just made up the pattern as I went along, making them longer than necessary in the hopes that she can wear them next year. I did an inch of 2x2 ribbing at the tops and bottoms with stockinette inbetween. The brown seemed too severe, so I added three fuschia stripes to each leg. They are snuggly warm.
My dear sweet baby girl.
