My latest knitting project was to knit legwarmers for the outside of my boots. Not to keep my legs warm but to keep my pants dry! I find when it’s wet or snowy out the hems of my pants get soaked which isn’t so bad until I take my boots off and I’m stuck with wet ankles. (Especially as I love to sit with a leg or two tucked underneath, then I get a wet seat too!). So these leg warmers are meant to combat this problem and with our current mini-thaw I figure they should be getting lots of use.
I knit them in a K2, P1 rib so they’d have lots of stretch and a bit of texture. Luckily I got two balls of wool (Paton’s Classic Wool) “just in case” as I ran out a few rows before finishing the second leg warmer. This means I have almost a full ball left to play with – I’m thinking felted bowl!
