I did it before, and I can do it again!

Remember those leg warmers I made? The ones that I said changed my life?  Well, they have some company:

Pattern: Oslo Legwarmers, by Martha Merzig
Yarn: Cascade Eco Wool
Needles: 3.75mm/US5 & 4.5mm/US7
Started: January 17
Finished: January 20

I made more mistakes knitting these than I care to recount, but one major one necessitates that I wear these upside down, with the colorwork closer to the bottom, rather than at the top of the warmers.  I don't mind, however, and think it works out well that the busiest part of the warmers will be farther from the my skirt hems.

I love these so freaking much!  I wear them about the house and on the street.  The neutral and natural colors give off just the vibe I was hoping for, and the yarn yielded a cozy and comfortable result. This is my third time working with Cascade Eco-Wool and it has yet to disappoint.  Great yardage and lovely colors at a nice price.

Now, if it would only turn cold again (57 deg. in January is absolutely bonkers!).

You seriously whipped those out so quickly! They are awesome. Yeah, too bad about the weather. Now that I am making more hand knits for myself, I can't wear them.

I adore these! Once I make my first few sets of socks and finish my shawl (half done with the mesh base as of tonight!), I'll start a set of legwarmers for myself. :)
