Finished Friday: Knit Lace Leg Warmers and More Socks

My knitting binge continues. (One of these days, my spinning wheel will be ready to go and I’ll be spinning instead.) This week I knocked out a pair of knitted leg warmers, another pattern from Lace One-Skein Wonders (edited by Judith Durant).

These leg warmers are actually purple.
Lacy leg warmers!

These were fast and easy. I’m not used to knitting with big needles and am always astonished at how quickly I can finish a project. Despite my speed, I was a little too slow. As I was binding them off, we suddenly hit 70-degree weather. Fortunately, I live in Colorado, so I’ll probably get to wear them before summer gets here.

My next project is going to take me a lot longer to finish. I’ve started a pair of cabled socks.

My new project: pattern, yarn, and sock cuff. Traveler's socks pattern by Stefanie Bold, in Interweave Knits Fall 2012

As you can see, tiny needles and tiny stitches. I make socks all the time, but I haven’t done any as complicated as this before. This is my first project to use cables. I’ve made cable swatches before, but nothing with cables actually as part of the product.  Looking forward to seeing how these turn out!
