A World of Legwarmers!

My favorite times of the year are Autumn and Winter, for many reasons. One of the reasons is I get to wear my knits. It feels like I have mountains of socks, beanies, legwarmers, wrist warmers, shawls, cowls, anything for those chilly Norwegian days. So today I thought I would show you my collection of legwarmers (including a few store bought ones).

These legwarmers where knitted with IMG_20150306_160135Sandnes Mini Palette Superwash (which appears to be discontinued), inspiration was found in a Sandnesgarn Mix Ung pattern booklet.

These legwarmers where knittedIMG_20150306_160609 ages ago, so I have no recollection what yarn they where knitted with. They are brown, green and black, and just long enough to cover up a pair of Doc Martens boots.

These legwarmers where alsoIMG_20150306_155041 knitted a thousand years ago (more or less), knitted with leftover yarn taking up space. They actually took quite a while to make, because of the different patterns I used.

These legwarIMG_20150220_140141mers where knittedIMG_20150306_161014 with leftover wool yarn, and the picture is a little misleading. The colors of the legwarmers are actually green and purple, not green and blue.
