After reading all the suggestions today and messaging alan55 ,I got busy and ... here they are !
They are very comfortable and surprisingly quick to knit . Yes the are warm as well .The only thing I will still do is to attach a rib on the bottom so that it will not curl up. I added the different wool at the bottom as I wanted the extra length and had run out of the grey wool.
The legwarmers will be very useful in a few days when a few MK girls meet at a Retreat for a WHOLE week to just knit and natter and have our meals cooked for us !!! It's winter time now and it's quite cold in Adelaide , Ose
Started with rib,transfered sts.and knitted with 2 eedles in work and 1 out.
Wow! Quick worker! Just in time, too, for the worst of your winter. Hope you don't need them too much.
I'm amazed that you could knit those in just one day - impressive!
Glad I could help - nice job.
Those are great! I forget you are in in winter - hard to imagine in our heat!
Hah! There's a word for that - aestivate - and I am right there with you. Hello from the N GA mountains, where it is in the mid-80s, but still 10 degrees cooler than metro Atlanta.
They do look comfy to me also.
Those look great and I am sure you will put them to good use.
A row of single crochet around the bottom - should help them NOT to curl up. Brrrrrrrrrrr....be glad when this winter is over.
Lovely....with our 100 degree heat, it will be awhile before needing them here.
