It's gettin chilly! Legwarmers anyone?
So I suddenly have the urge to make my own since I've seen them in stores a lot lately.. if anyone has any pictures or wanna start with me, we can discuss how to go about this.

I'm in! I promised myself to make them after I finished the two scarfs I have on my needles, but now I'm too tempted.

I've never knit anything round before, so leg warmers are the perfect project to learn.

I've never done a KAL before. I would really like to do this for my daughter though and I need a new project.

Wow love those arm/leg warmers! They look great! After legwarmers, I plan on making matching armwarmers as well! I'm finishing off a scarf right now as well, so I'll wait til everyone is ready to do this.

Those are beautiful. My 4 year old has a fat foot though and I think that if I added any more bulk, I wouldn't get her shoe on! I found this site http://www.cara4webshopping.com/cara_free/legwarm.htm that I think I will use as a starting point. Now to figure out what yarn to use :thinking:
