I can't remember when I started them, but I finished a pair of legwarmers last month. They were probably started before I joined Ravelry. Looking at a bag of leftover sock yarn balls, I decided to knit them together. I don't know what I was going to do with it. It was just a leg-sized tube that I would pick up whenever I was between projects. Maybe it was going to be a scarf, maybe funky socks. The difficulty was that all the balls were of different sizes, and weight.
Rummaging through my daughter's drawers (at her request), I came across a pair of legwarmers I knit for her out of self-striping sock yarn. I remember knitting them during the summer of 2007. Ravelry hadn't come into my life yet and I was still knitting on dpns. It took a loooong time to finish those legwarmers because I wanted them to go all the way up E's thighs. Thankfully, she had skinny legs. Anyway, when I saw the first legwarmers I knit for E, I decided to make my tube into legwarmers too. Here are the results:
She's already worn them to dance class and I think her friends would like some too.
