Repeat after me

It’s a rarity that I knit the same thing twice. I bet there are only about a dozen patterns in my entire knitting experience where I’ve made more than one of a particular pattern. There have been a few hats that I made in different colorways (the Turn A Square comes to mind), but generally the aspect I love best about knitting is trying new things.

But these Waterlily leg warmers are fantastic. I liked the grey pair so well that I decided to cast on a green set. This is a regular worsted weight wool, so I stuck to the pattern (the chunk grey ones required fewer stitches, so I tinkered with the ribbing). This pattern is great for commuter knitting because the cables are easy. I’m doing them one at a time because my circular needle isn’t very long, but it’s a snap to make them match. The yarn was frogged from a failed sweater project, so it’s a bit ramen-like; these will definitely need a blocking to even things out.

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
