OTN: Legwarmers!
This is my first attempt EVER!

Yes it is a throw back to the 80's but here in Texas it only gets REALLY cold about 3 weeks a year, legwarmers will come in handy!

No pattern really. I CO 60 st and did a 2x2 ribbing for about an inch, each color is supposed to be 4.5 inches of Sts and another inch of 2x2 ribbing at the end.

My next pair is going to be more detailed. I found a pattern in "One Skein Projects" for some really cute ones with a lace pattern at the top.

Nice work! You weren't kidding about a fast knit, eh? Congrats! Now where's the second one? Don't you fall victim to SSS.
