stripey woolly leg warmers


Not quite like the original stripy sweetheart (turned canvas), but still I am rather pleased with the outcome of these crocheted legwarmers in wool.

Despite them being back in some people's wardrobes for some time now, myself I haven't sported legwarmers since the eighties. As long as it took me to accept the reinstatement of leggings - me now think they are brilliant worn right -, it took me even longer to warm up to the idea of making leg warmers to actually wear again.


But I thought these simple ones would be a nice, quick project - and a naturally good excuse for getting some new yarn - that could be whipped together in front of the telly. (And yes I did decide on yarn and made them way before the matching shoes entered my world actually.)

And they did turn out to be just that, super simple to make I think they'll be a rather nice and perky addition to autumn/winter wardrobe. I hereby declare October to be the perfect month for the inauguration of leg warmers on Pia ~

They are adorable! Wish I could knit now! A project for a less busy winter, I think. :)

Gasp! For cute! I love that they match the shoes so well, and I will fully support your decision to make October the month for leg warmers. ;o)
