I finished the leg warmer yesterday but once off the needle it looked a little too wide. Hmph….
Let me explain… I have what can be generously described as ‘strong legs’ I wanted to make sure my calves weren’t busting out like some Incredible Hulk so I added a few stitches… Hmph…
I had planned to cast on the second before sewing up the first but I thought I’d better check the fit before making a start on the second…..And BINGO! Leg warmers for a baby elephant…. Yey.
Unlike the glove I recently made fit for a giant, there was no alternative use for it…. champagne bottle warmer…. vase warmer???? No. Nothing else for it but to frog 🐸.
By the time I’d done that I’d lost my leg warmer mojo. My husband suggested we watch Gravity because Sandra Bullock is my favourite actress…. good film but not at all relaxing in fact harrowing so I started knitting this Peter Pan hat.
The snow finally came in properly yesterday and was still there today so we built an igloo and I finished this little hat. I like it. I need to improve the decrease but apart from that I like it… what do you think?
