That feeling that I've had this experience before is with me today. Leg-warmers were the big thing back in the 70s I think (give or take a decade) and here we go again. Or did they ever leave us? They're such lovely warm things that I bet we've been closet wearers all this time. Now they've re-emerged and are more fashionable than ever. I've finished the pair that I've been making for our daughter. She plans to wear them with boots. In the World's Fastest Knitter Stakes I'm way back in the field but these are ready to wear now. I can't make any promises re the scarf I've started. That's baby fine yarn I'm working with as I wanted a nice drapey 'pashmina' effect. I feel a lengthy knitting spell coming on. Still, "slow & steady" etc........let's see how I get on.
Coldest April morning for 16 years here today. Hmmm - perhaps another pair - for myself this time.
I hope you're enjoying the weather wherever you are. Bye for now until next time.


  1. Legwarmers! One of my friends has been fervently wishing them back in fashion!

  2. You've reminded me that I haven't worn my raspberry pink legwarmers all winter. It's cold here, too, but not cold enough for woolly warmers.

    I have a love-hate relationship with sock-weight scarves. I love the results, but the knitting feel interminable.

  3. LOL I wear slacks and in the cold weather long Jills for me.. LOL
    Love the scarf pattern it is going to look so delicate..
    The colour is gorgeous.. now just add a little red LOL...

  4. Minding my Own they seem to be back here. I think they're great for wearing while watching TV.

    Caffeine Girl I think the scarf will take me a long time too. But it's still only Autumn here so I've got a couple of months to get it finished

    Pat, Good thought, a few small red beads might make an interesting addition - perhaps stitched to the edge.

  5. Ah, I loved leg warmers...late 70s, early 80s...when I was in my early to mid 20s and taking ballet and jazz. I lived in leg warmers. Your purple ones are lovely, and I'm looking forward to seeing how that scarf turns out. Wonderful shade of purple!
