SO HAPPY THEY ARE DONE!


I was inspired by Chanel's f/w '09 collection and decided to knit up my own pair of fuzzy cashmere tights.  I used Barbara Walker's Knitting From the Top as a guide and measured, measured, measured.

The process is documented in the links below:
start: http://amazingknits.wordpress.com/2010/01/21/spiraling-seam-awfulness/
middle: http://amazingknits.wordpress.com/2010/02/08/fixed/

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

Aww thank you!  They are really warm, soft, and light too.  I kind of wish I had found a less white color but that was the only available color of that yarn.  I am kind of scared to wear them out because they will get dirty easier...
And yes quirkyfaerie you read right!  These technically are my first pair of socks.  This chart: http://home.earthlink.net/~bruxknits/pats/BasicSockChart.pdf is amazing and is how I was able to work it out.  Cheesy
