Finished mine!

Actually, I finished them New Year's Eve day and just haven't gotten around to taking a picture. I wore them to a NYE party, Minty-style under my jeans, and do on a regular basis. I kinda love them.

I used the "Super-Easy Legwarmers" pattern from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, done in Cascade 220 in 9460 and KidSilk Haze in "Drab". I did both at once, magic-loop style, and was going to keep going until I ran out of the Cascade, but I got impatient (and tired of the 1x1 rib), so I decided to make them shorter, perfect for under the jeans without getting too bulky. I could probably have done them both with less than one skein of the 220.

I will probably make another, longer pair at some point, once I decide what pattern to make. That, and once I get a few other WIP's finished up. I remember a pair of knitted tights from when I was a kid that had cables and such - I can see them re-interpreted as legwarmers, perhaps.

Thanks! I've got sort of a collection of obnoxious knee socks. They do work well with the legwarmers, don't they? =)

Very nice!

Would you say one skein of Cascade 220 is not enough for two legwarmers? I bought only one skein, based on the legwarmer pattern in The Knit Stitch. Now I'm worried I may need more.

Bonnie - I have more than half of each skein left, so depending on how long you want to make them, you should be fine.

Very cute! I'm going to use the same pattern and same yarn....only in blue.
