to knit these leggings? Ok, at least for me, I think it might take a day longer than forever.

They are pretty, don't you know that they would be warm, though?!

Isn't warm the goal in winter? I would definitely wear them, but probably not those colors.

$38 for that much yarn isn't really that bad of a deal...

but for that much work, i'll just buy a set of long johns.

I'd love to make and wear those, but it seems like such a waste because I don't do skirts. I could use all the warmth I can get, though!

Smartwool makes long johns in merino that are $50, but they only come in boring colors. I love Smartwool socks and always buy them if I find a sale. Last winter TJ Maxx had some.

I wonder if they would stretch out too much at places like the knees and leave me with "elephant knee syndrome." Not a pretty thought.

I emailed Morehouse to see if I could purchase the kit in any of the colors not just the three listed on that page.

I think I will have to put it on my Christmas list. If I start this winter, I might be able to wear them next winter.

You could double knit them like in that article on the latest knitty...I'm gonna do that on my next pair of socks.

how would that work on a pair of pants? :??

hmm...i guess if they were knit bottom up you could do that until you had to join.....hmm...yeah i still wouldn't do it. (especially now with the image of stretched out kneeular areas! :shock:

It would take about as long as the Dr. Who scarf (http://www.doctorwhoscarf.com/) I'm knitting now :wall:

but they do look cozy

Aw, come on Cate, Rochester winters aren't that bad! :roflhard:

Not something that I would wear myself, I must admit.
