What a feeling!

2 May

Yep, here are my snazzy legwarmers. I must admit, I like the original color scheme better–the light blue is too much of a contrast with the darker blue. But they sure are cozy, they look pretty good, and I was never planning on wearing them in public anyway.

In other project news, after re-reading the directions and re-basting the inside and outside together, I realized that I did sew up the Vogue handbag correctly. I just don’t like it that way. So I’m going to sew the zipper to the top part of the interfacing, to give myself some extra room in the bag. It’s such a small bag as it is, it’s a shame to cut down on the interior space. We’ll see how it goes.

And my Cascade 220 arrived! The color is interesting, closer to the swatch on Purl’s site, but it also has flecks of blue in it. Pretty neat. I’m almost done my gauge swatch, and I might start on the Hourglass sweater tomorrow.

    What is the snazzy legwarmer pattern? I am disappointed with a pattern I knitted and am seriously rethinking ripping out and starting over with something new.

    Your legwarmers are SO cute? I have been looking for a cute pair of legwarmers to knit. What/Where is the pattern? If you don’t mind sharing.

    Thanks! It’s from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. They knit up really quickly on 12″ circulars (easy to find on the Web and sometimes on eBay, if you don’t have them).
