ESK is currently doing a Flash Craft Along for legwarmers.  When they announced it, I decided I wasn't going to do it.  I didn't think I had very much use for them.  I have a pair that I don't wear very much, so I figured I'd just sit this CAL out and do my own thing.

Dance shoe leg warmers

Then someone posted this pattern and I was hooked.  I pretty much keep my toes painted year round, but the actual painting and dry time can get kind of cold in the winter.  These will be perfect!  They're knit in fingering weight yarn so they'll be a weight that's actually useful here.  I'm using Madelinetosh Twist Light in Lost in Trees Solid and I'm seriously thinking I might need a sweater quantity of this.  I think it would make a nice, lightweight cardigan.

Anyway, I've finished the first one (except weaving in the ends) and I'm about to do the heel opening for the second one.  I did continue the ribbing about an inch past the heel opening to keep the leg portion on the leg and not sagging over the heel.  I'm not sure it would have done that, but since I plan to wear these barefoot and not over shoes, it made sense that a little ribbing would be a good idea.  I've got until Monday to finish these and I think I'm going to be fine.

We've got Caleb home for Spring Break this week so I might not be here Thursday.  Hopefully I'll have finished legwarmers to show you next week!
