I finally finished the hat to go with the scarf I finished last week for my 12 yr old. It was my first project using circs and MAN I have to say I LOVE them!!! They really made the hat look better and go a lot faster it seemed.

Anyway here is the hat, I made it with the LB Wool-Ease thick and quick in Claret on size 13 16" circs. I didn't really follow a pattern, I just did k2p2 until it looked like enough and then just did the rest in st st

in progress

My WIP is leg warmers for my 78 yr old g-ma. She is always wears dresses and in the winter her legs are always cold in the winter. So I am making her a pair of leg warmers. I have one done and need to start the other one.

The yarn... I can't remember, its just some inexpensive yarn I found at Walmart. I am using size 8 needles and doing a k2p2 pattern that I found http://xtreme-knitting.com/photos-legwarmers.htm

Love the legwarmers. Your g-ma might have to wear them with a ripped sweatshirt a la "Flashdance"!

I love the leg warmers--is there a pattern you're using or are you just winging it? My neice is very into dance and she'd die for a pair of handmade leg warmers!
