on the muggiest day of summer, I finish leg warmers

When I first started working where I do last summer, I knit myself up a quick, simply functional pair of leg warmers because of how cold my office is. This year I decided I wanted to make myself some pretty ones that I actually liked. And here is the result:


Pattern: Mosey, from Knitty
Yarn: Patons Classic Merino in Peacock, 3 skeins, on size 7 circular needles
Notes: I made the large size, but I think I could have gotten away with the small. I really liked the narrow cable band--it came out very pretty.


The first picture is truer to the color of the yarn. I seem to be very taken with blue-greens right now!

Oooh, definitely pretty! And, ok, maybe not so useful right now, but they will be!
