Gray for a dancer

Finally – leg warmers off my needles!


This is the gray project that was going to drive me crazy. I decided to simplify the knitting (and my life), and I knitted these fairly easy leg warmers for my daughter instead of very  intricate ones for myself. I’m glad I did that, simple is beautiful.

Our little dancer started taking jazz dance classes after three years of “children’s dance” where she wore a pink ballet dress. I’m surprised that she is very excited about the new black shoes, trousers and leotard, and that everything doesn’t have to be pink anymore. So she happily wears the grey leg warmers too.

I love the subtle ribbed cables. They don’t stand out from the rest of the work too much, but they are still visible enough. I’m gonna use this idea for another project soon!
