Legwarmers Done

I've finished up my legwarmers and it's supposed to be cooler again this next weekend!  I've got to weave in the ends and I might steam block them (or I'll just wear them and forget about the blocking).  These are the Waterlily Leg Warmers (free pattern), knit in Elann's Peruvian Highland Wool in a dark gray heather that appears to be out of stock right now.  I did need four skeins, but I didn't use all of the fourth skein.  I tried them on as I went so the shaping fits my legs, instead of just following the pattern.  The only other change I made was to make the top ribbing twice as long as the pattern calls for so I can either fold it down or scrunch the tops at my knee.  This was a quick pattern and easy to do!  Oh, just in case, it looks like the bottom legwarmer is a little longer than the top one, it's not - the top one has been stretched sideways some which made it look smaller.  It gave me a little scare this morning because I hadn't compared them side by side, but the bottom legwarmer is the second one I made and that one hadn't been tried on yet.  They are the same size.
