What do you give an aspiring little ballerina? Legwarmers!


I made them to fit my forearms, figuring those are about the same size as a nearly-5-year-old’s lower legs. I was right.

Pattern: own (k2p2 rib, then fisherman’s rib)
Yarn: Plymouth Yarns Encore Worsted, 75% acrylic, 25% wool, color 0137
Needles: US size 7
Started 5/30 and finished 6/11/2011

Doing a self-timer photo of my forearms on the cold, blustery day I picked for this photoshoot was not easy. I had my sweater and coat sleeves rolled up past my elbows and they kept wanting to flop down so eventually I took off my coat, tied my sweater sleeves with spare yarn, and shivered my way through this.
