Pattern: original, merged from other patterns for socks and leggings for kids
Made For: Hannie (age 6)
Needle: US 3
Yarn: Roundabout Yarn’s “Frosty” fingering-weight
Completed: July 10, 2015

Knitting two at a time using magic loop. Good thing because I can already tell I wouldn't have completed the second one if I was knitting them individually.

Hannie picked out this yarn when we visited the Shepherd’s Harvest Festival earlier this Spring. She decided that of all the things, she wanted this yarn to become legwarmers. So that’s what I created for her!

Not the most exciting thing to knit, but I was happy to learn how to knit a pair of items at the same time. If I ever try socks again, this is definitely the method I’ll be employing!

Sio tries on the legwarmers. #knitting

I also love that she was so excited I had “finally” finished, that she wore them outside for most of the afternoon — in July!
