Colleen's Legwarmers... finally done!
Thank goodness, the legwarmers are now ready to go to their new owner. I'm hoping against hope that they will fit her.
If you look at the picture, you will see a big bulge just before the ribbing for the knee. That's to accommodate the huge muscle she has there. I was amazed when she showed it to me and had to measure it. IT's two inches bigger than her knee and as hard as a basketball!
So I've done quite a bit of fudging to make these things. I know she loves the colour. I'm just hoping that they don't look funny on her.

Just lovely.

Wish I would have tried to knit back when I used to dance ballet. Would have been knitting leg warmers left and right.
