Peachy Slouchy Gansey Legwarmers

As soon as I picked up the newest Interweave Knits Weekend, I knew I had to make the Gansey Legwarmers by Courtney Kelley. I headed over to Knit-A-Way, chose a burnt orange alpaca blend (Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light) and cast on! They actually took me a long time to knit, but then again, I figure they are almost the size of two pairs of socks! So maybe I'm not that slow after all. In any case, they turned out wonderfully and I can't wait to wear them!

The dog was feeling photogenic this morning (i.e. wouldn't get out of the way) so any white fuzzy stuff you see is a little bit of Harley. 

And in the picture above, he is not in motion, just highlighting a blurry spot on my lens (dog nose juice...I cleaned it after this shot). 

Also, if you are interested in my coordinating toenail polish, it's Essie Alligator Purse, available at Thompson Chemists/Alchemists
