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.
They're lovely and it is satisfying to use up yarn you already have, especially if you can remember when and where you bought it.
Phoebe's so smiley- my youngest has just been admiring her photo over my shoulder :)
They're great! I think I need to knit myself a pair of leg warmers. This may have inspired me to do that.
Such a smiley girl! The legwarmers look so cozy.
Glad I'm not alone in having unused supplies that predate the children. Of course, my "children" are a fair bit older than yours :)
Sweet baby girl! If they are outgrown on her legs she can wear them as arm warmers. Our grandchildren as old as 6 are till wearing their baby legs with short sleeved shirts in the winter.
