some solutions

These little mis-matches definitely solve the leg warmer puzzle. From Kat Coyle's Boho Baby Knits, knitted up in Rowan Wool Cotton, these are the new blueprint for many leg warmers to come. I'll finish up pairs from some of the other singlets, ones the girls have approved of the fit of, but then go to town with the BOHOs--perhaps sewing in a little elastic. Thirteen inches long, knit flat and seamed, eight rows of 2x2 ribbing at top and bottom: what can be simpler?

I'll top the purple one with another two inches of white 2x2 ribbing, so one could fold it over (or not), throw away the Cascade Fixation pinky, and complete the Dreams in Color all in ribbing pair.

And the Cable/Heart Aran continues apace: I'm crawling up the two sleeves, for a saddle finish.
