I actually made these awhile ago, during the summer (July, I think). Since then I've made a bunch more things on dpn (I looove knitting on them!). But I forgot that they were on  my camera until today, so I thought I should post them!

I love this shot, but please excuse my knobby knees and beat up feet (I had broken in my new hiking boots earlier in the day!)

Shot from the side:

Full body shot!


I love my legwarmers! It's kind of hard to see, but I used a waffle stitch on them. They're nice to wear around my room, but I don't wear them out because they tend to slip down since I made the ribbing at the top too big (now I know to change that for next time!). I can't wait to knit these up again in a different stitch, they were so fun and easy to make! Thanks for looking!

Those are soooo cute!  Great job!  I have that same dinosaur shirt, which I think goes perfectly with the leg warmers.  Smiley

Love them!

Thread some fine elastic through the ribbing. That'll do the trick!

Love that yarn =)
It reminds me of rainbow ice cream I used to have when I was a wee cheeky scamp  Tongue

Thanks everyone! It got reeeeeally cold this week, so I've finally got a chance to use them, and they're so comfy! I'm making some for my roommate right now!
