FO legwarmers :)
Made some legwarmers for my cousin :D my first time knitting in the round and cabling. They're not perfect, spacing between cables isn't even... and a little plain between the cables but my cousin is the least fussy person. Took me a while to make these but I learnt a lot in the process.

Those look great...I guess my eye isn't "trained" I couldn't see where anything looked off.

They look great to me. If close up you see uneven stitches try washing and blocking them and the stitches will look more even. Very nice present.

PamJ - don't know if you can see from the pic but the wool was intertwined with gold metallic strippy thing

Hey, those look great!! The other day I was telling DH I needed some ankle warmers. Not the whole leg, just around the ankle. They have wristers, they ought to have anklers. LOL I'll have to invent some for myself.

Yours will do the whole job! Nice color too. I'm sure you learned a lot all right. Great project.
