Hey all! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who knits year round.

Lately, I've been testing out my patience for fair isle (and not for the first time), via the creation of these leg tube thingies.  They came out cute, and were a good use for a small selection of my recycled/hand-dyed yarns, such as I invariably have hanging around.  Even where I live, in the Pacific Northwest, it's definitely not seasonally appropriate to bust these out; however, I was entertained. And isn't that the point?

I used this pattern as a start: http://www.joann.com/legwarmer-socks/prod720822/
Departures--aside from the obvious stopping before it became a sock part--include changing the actual fair isle pattern to this little heart design, and upping the needle to a US size 7.

The top photo probably shows the colors best.

Happy to hear what you think!

It's bad enough wasting time, without killing it.

I think they are gorgeous! They'd look cute peeking out of the top of some boots, too.  Wink

Thanks! I like the boot idea. When the weather cools just a little, I'll definitely try it.
