Ahhhh. Working more or less fulltime really makes you appreciate the days off, doesn’t it? I slept in a bit and am loving the nice quiet house. Not that it’s a lazy day, I need to get lots of stuff done! And it’s not like I’m just home all day either, there’s the matter of knit night back down at the store…
Anyway, I’ve finally gotten some photos of an FO, just off the needles the other day – just a pair of stupidly easy legwarmers.
I started (and completed) one whole one last winter, but it was so warm last year that I didn’t really have incentive to finish the second one! I’m glad I picked it back up and knitted the second one – it only took a few days.
Yarn: Lana Gatto VIP, 80% merino, 20% cashmere, 2 skeins
Needles: 3mm circular (magic loop), 7 sts/in
Pattern: Cast on 80 and knit till you run out of yarn!
They’re sooooo soft and comfy. I think I’ll be wearing them a lot this year – Denny’s influence has gotten me off wearing pants for the most part, so I’m armed with some longer skirts and lots of tights for the upcoming season. Not that I’m never going to wear pants, but I think it’ll be “skirts with occational pants” rather than “pants with occational skirts”.
Off to can what is probably the last batch of tomatoes!
