Early Easter Equals Leg Warmers

I knitted up a pair of leg warmers for my daughter to wear with her Easter outfit. She is my "freeze baby" and hates to be cold so since the outfit involved a skirt we made sure she wore tights AND leg warmers. I didn't have a pattern for these so I made this one up. I'm sure it's pretty simple for many of you knitters but for my first pattern I was a bit challenged at times but I'm happy with how they turned out. And do you see that pile of yarn there in the picture? I was sweatin' it when it kept getting smaller and smaller and wasn't sure I'd have enough but phew! I made it with three and a half yards to boot!

By the way, there is a give-away going on over here. I have purchased one of her bags and her work is impeccable. Love the fabrics she used for the wristlet.

Hi Kelly,
Yes, I will share it. I meant to add the suggestion in the post but forgot. I'll get working on it (if I can read my chicken scratch :)
