*FO* Legwarmers... FINALLY!
Ok I have been working on these things forever it seems. Only because I wouldn't work on them for days at time. I am sure I could have had them done quicker.

These are for my 70 yr old G-ma who is now in a nursing home. She is always cold and complains they keep it downright frigid in there So I made her legwarmers and my mom made her a fleece house coat.

So here they are. I got the pattern here:

http://xtreme-knitting.com/photos-legwarmers.htm

I didn't do the stripes... and didn't quite make them as long as she did

I can't remember the yarn its very inexpensive yarn I got at Walmart on size 8 needles done in k2p2 pattern.





oh yeah... and the one on my left leg is like an inch too short... trying to convince myself to fix it :rollseyes:

I don't know if she even knows what that means!

What a great idea! I bet she will love them! Loving the Buzz Lightyear sneaking in the pic. I have a 2 year old currently in awe of Buzz.

Those are great!! My grandmother always complains about how cold it is in her nursing home, too- even though she's in a private room with the heat turned up to 80! I guess that internal thermostat doesn't work the same when you are 90! I'm sure your grandmother will love them.
