wooly legs

Remember this WIP photo from Saturday?

DSCN4009

It's sock yarn, but it's not socks. This is the finished product:
wooly legs

Still not sure what they are (turkey drumstick cozies??)? Let me call upon the able assistance of the Wooly Babe to model for you:
wooly legs

As you might know, the Wooly Babe will be wearing this harness for 6+ weeks to treat developmental dysplasia of the hip. Unfortunately, the harness makes her wardrobe choices somewhat limited, as she can't wear those cute little footie baby one-piece outfits. Or pants. So, she needs something to keep her both warm and fashionable.

Pattern: Wooly Legs (Ruth's improvised pattern ... scroll to the bottom)
Yarn: Mama-E C*EYE*BER Fiber Signature Sock Yarn in "Jolene"
Needles: Addi Turbo and Knitpicks DPNs, size 1.5
Gauge: close to 9 sts/in

Wooly Babe, hope you are warm and toasty!

  • This is one of the best uses of knitting ever. You generate so much good karma.

  • That's so great! I am an adult who had hip dysplasia as a mere babe and would have loved donning those gorgeous hand-knits!

  • What a great thing for you to do with that beautiful sock yarn! Wooly Babe will have the most fashionable legs in town!

  • That's so sweet! I'm going to put my mom hat on here and say (or shout) that it is so nice to have multiples of things that a baby wears regularly because sometimes they need multiple outfit changes in a very short period of time. I don't mind doing laundry, but washing and drying something in a mad rush so you can put it right back on the baby stinks, and you've saved Ruth some of that hassle. Bravo!
