These finally came off the sticks last week. Julen has been waiting since his birthday for this gift. I just found this project incredibly hard to work on. (Round and round and round and round). As one friend said, it's hard to make two of anything and I have to agree. The first one went pretty quickly, but the second? Weeks. In fact I was getting a little worried that the first one would wear out before I finished both as Julen was so excited about the one, he started using it immediately.
Julen picked out the yarn colors and then colored in the sketch of the legwarmers I drew to give me an idea of what he wanted. He loved that he designed these on his own.
I used 3 skeins of Plymouth Select Merino Superwash yarn (what I had left is pictured above)
The pattern came from Ursula in the comments section of this post (thanks Ursula!!). I had reached out looking for a legwarmer pattern and she answered my call...don't you just love this crafty blog world?
I used #4 DPNs and cast on 50 stitches. Despite my challenges of finishing this one, I sure love how they turned out.
