Christmas Knitting

These legwarmers were a completely ex tempore idea. Knit in a couple of days in manly colors, these went to warm my dad’s ankles. I didn’t even have to ask him to try them on to see if they fit – he quickly put them on and wore them for the rest of the Christmas Eve evening! Kainuu Grey is a rare sheep breed, related to Finn.
