Pattern Description:

One of my mom's besties, Lea, is known for her fantastic leg warmers. I was both jealous of and inspired by hers, so grabbed a skein of yarn that's been calling my name and started knitting. And knitting. And knitting. These long, long leg warmers are the result. Self-striping yarns sing on this lovely uninterrupted stockinette canvas - let them do all the heavy lifting while you relax.
