Just looking at these pictures make me feel hot… I knitted these when it was still cold out this spring.
I’ve been amusing my co-workers by bringing my projects to work and crafting on coffee breaks when I’m on site. I’ve even left a couple knitting needles and balls of yarn there for my coworkers to try their hands on.
This was the perfect project for those short bursts of knitting. I had a ball of reflective yarn (Viking garn -reflex) in a hot pink and combined it with Drops Nepal (wool/alpacka). The Nepal is soft and warm, and a fair bit thicker than the Reflex. All three skeins were stash yarn that I’ve had for years…
I knitted the cuffs in pink Nepal and then knitted stripes with the dark purple and hot pink reflective yarn. I ended up increasing and decreasing so the pink reflective rows have 2 more stitches.
My coworkers said they look like raspberry licorice leg warmers
I was done with them when it started to get warm out, but I got some use for them indoors when it got nippy and I didn’t want warm socks.
