So, today's piece was a continuation of Margie's sweater from two days ago.
The final piece looked a bit like this...
...but I wasn't going to stop there because there were some remnant sleeves to play with!
I was left with two of these puppies...
Leftover sleeves have a plethora of possibilities, but it's been cold so I knew exactly what I was going to do with them!!
To make a fab pair of legwarmers (yes, legwarmers!!) I tried the sleeves on my legs and pinned them in the areas that needed to be taken in. I turned the sleeve inside out, pinned the excess and stitched away!
My new, rockin', legwarmers!! I have to say, it made me get back into ballet mode and I stretched like crazy tonight!!
The chenille knit is so cozy that the warmers are going to stay on my legs all night long! (I had an electric blanket that I became oh, so fond of, but then started getting freaked out after reading the side effects thanks to eHow's article...too much extra electromagnetic energy = no bueno!)
I may or may not have been doing pirouettes in my living room...
...Black Swan is coming out on DVD, thanks to the 17 commercials I saw for it tonight, so I was getting in the prima ballerina spirit, just sans the crazy contacts and back scratching.
