Oh, it is so nice out. Spring has come to NYC. This past weekend was warm enough for flip flops, which I wore to the park for an afternoon of lounging, where I managed to sunburn my right shoulder only.
Also, after nearly three years of living in my current apartment, roof access has been discovered! roof access rocks. I plan to spend all sorts of time enjoying roof access this summer. Well, it would be even better if the scantily-clad hipsters who live two buildings down and enjoy photo shoots did not also know about roof access. these hipsters do not rock. Perhaps their trust funds will soon run out.
However, spring has not come to my office. Its freezing in here. I'd love to wear cute spring clothes, but for fear of extreme coldness, I have not yet deviated from my winter pants uniform. brrrr. There must be a knitted solution to this temperature dilemma, right?
Enter the Gloworm legwarmers. Perfect for in-office wearing, and equally cool-looking with skirts or pants. Also okay even if one forgets to take them off while dashing out for gummi bears.
I plan to follow the pattern for these legwarmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, using these 3 yarns held together:
Peruvian Highland Wool in Celery. 4 skeins remain from a Christmas gift.
Kusa Silk Mohair from Habu Textiles, shade 24
Lana Gatto Mohair Royal, color 2118.
One strand of each, on a size 8 12" circular needle. probably without a fancy cast-on, but one never knows what I will come up with.
Office warmness is all but ensured!
