Legwarmers. What can I say? They have always treated me well.
I don't care if you think they are pointless or dated or only for ballet class. The truth is that you just haven't found the beauty in them yet.
And let me tell you, they are so useful to have when you are carrying around a toddler during the winter months.
I don't know why more people don't use them, they're fantastic.
I'm currently knitting some more legwarmers, still easy, only a bit more fancy (think diagonal rib.) so keep checking up for the pattern.
