Welted Leg Warmers and Scarf Pattern

I am so excited to announce that my designs for Premier Yarns are now live on their website!

It has been so hard not being able to talk about the process of knitting these garments and the wonderful yarn I got to play with. But no more. Now I can tell you that Premier Yarns’ Angel yarn is the softest acrylic yarn I have ever worked with. The yarn made it such a pleasure to knit this set.

The scarf and leg warmers themselves are simple knits perfect for beginner knitters. Yet, the dramatic effect of the pieces can easily spark the interest of more advanced knitters as well. A perfect set to knit before the snow starts falling hard.

Little Red, Where Are You?

So, remember that red mohair yarn I talked about making into socks awhile back? Well, I did start knitting socks with them, (which knitted up gorgously by the way), but in the process of working on the leg portion I got struck with another idea to turn them into a pair of leg warmers. Well, it so happened that a couple of knitting opportunities have arise and my leg warmers seem like a perfect fit for one of them. So my once mohair socks are now  a swatch with sketch design for leg warmers, currently on their way to being considered for a magazine. Crossing my fingers. Wish me luck.
