Arturo's Legwarmers

One down, one to go. I cast on more stitches for him and also made them longer. I LOVE the Denim Ombre yarn (Bernat Softee Chunky). All of their ombres are much softer than the solids, and I love how silky and pretty they are. These are my fave so far. Clearly I'm not going to finish all 8 pairs by the show next Thursday, and I am so mad at myself for not starting sooner. Oh well, I think they'll understand.

Cast on 34

Row 1: (K2, P1) to end, K1
Row 2: K1, (K1, P2) to end

5 rows with Natural, switch to Denim Ombre on purl side, knit 33 rows, switch back to Natural for 5 more rows. Bind off.

Seam together with mattress stitch.

YOu could always knit one for each person and tell them th second is on it's way. LOL I am sure they will understand as well.

Dear Wendy, I didn't know you knitted! I'm very impressed!!! I am always looking for nice leg-warmers, they're difficult to find aren't they. I especially love the Giselle ones.
Have you thought of selling them on etsy? I'd definitely buy a few pairs!!!

Benjy left you a little note on my blog in the comments section, and I also added a link to your cool blog in my post. Voila!

I wish I were in Miami...
