I fell in love with the Mosey Legwarmer pattern from Knitty the first time I saw it, but I thought it was kind of a silly thing for me to think of wearing. I finally broke down and knitted a pair, telling myself I could always sell them to a deserving teenager at the next Mu Phi Fundraiser. Of course, I find myself liking them a lot, not least because they're so very warm and cozy. You can see them above, with the front at the top and the back below.
And now the moment of truth. Here they are on me. Are they awful, fine, daring, ridiculous, ...? The fact that I'm asking myself this (and you of course) leads me to believe these should stay under wraps. Let me know what you all think, truly. I have a friend here whose daughter would probably take these in a heartbeat, so no worries.
I should say that I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease for these, and it was perfect. It's also the first time I've made pompons, although I'm very familiar with the process. When my mother used to pick us up from school when I was in First Grade, she was making tons of pompons to be used as grapes on an afghan her mother was making her. She would wait in the car, wrapping yarn or brushing it until it was very fuzzy. It was a beautiful afghan. Each bunch had 3 colors of grapes from deep purple to lavender I think, although it seems like some might have been a pale green. I'll have to look at it again. It had panels with long twisting vines and bunches of grapes here and there.
