Ribbed Knit Bamboo Leg Warmers

Check these out! I knit these a while back but haven't had a chance to take photos of them til now (had to borrow someone with legs of course). A little later on today I'll be taking more off-the-legs pictures and listing them on Etsy!

These are hand-knit from Bamboo Natural Blends yarn (86% Bamboo, 12% Acrylic, 2% Polyester). They're cream-colored and 19.5" (about 50cm) from end to end. The bottom end (for the ankle/top of the foot) is about 8"(20cm) around, and doesn't stretch too much so the warmers will stay put securely. The top end is about 10" (25cm) around and allows you to slouch the legwarmers to your liking. I can easily add elastic at the top if you'd like. The wide knit will let these legwarmers stretch to fit many sizes.

In case you've never heard of bamboo yarn before, let me tell you, it is AMAZING!! It's very soft, sleek and smooth, and has a very nice sheen to it. And, I feel a lot better about using bamboo than sheep's wool.

So, what do you think?

(P.S. HUGE special thanks to KG for letting me use her legs/feet for these pictures)
