Off the needles... legwarmies for AJ

So, I had 24 grams of yarn leftover from this project and wanted to use it up so that it would no longer be a part of my stash.

I was thinking about knitting up a headband for AJ so that she could match her little brother when he wears his hat, but I realized that legwarmers would have a greater chance of actually staying on her.

With such a small amount of yardage (and having to double up the yarn to get gauge), I ended up with ankiewarmies instead of legwarmies. :-)



The color repeats of the yarn were as such that I would end up with one mostly green and one mostly brown warmie (see pic above). Instead, I opted to hold the yarn double in such a way that a variegated look was created. 








I have a 10+ hour (each way) road trip coming up, and I hope to be able to bang out more stash-busting projects. Stay toasty and Nae are looking to be my patters of choice!!

In my sketchbook....no more smooshed leaves!

I've been playing around with this sort of leaf motif but it kinda looked a little awkward.


  


I liked the way the individual leaves were stacked, but not how it was smooshed (yes, I'm using a made-up word)  in the flower. Solution: just draw the leafy part!!
