Ice skating and a New Pattern!

 This week I decided that it was time to take my little one ice skating.  I haven't been skating in at least 12 or so years, but I always loved it!  I grew up skating, and can't even remember how young I was when I first put on a pair of skates.  We had many indoor rinks around, growing up, and we skated year round.  I took lessons when I was very little.  I have fond memories of skating at Rockerfeller Center.
The above picture is the only one I have of my daughter on the ice.  Yup, that's right.  She was not a fan.  Figures.  She slid once, and decided she was too scared.  She held my hand and my friend's husband on the other side, just to get 3/4 around the rink to the penalty box.  She went "ahhhh" the whole way.  Poor thing.
But prior to the failed journey, I decided to create some super cute little legwarmers for her.  Skates just look better when accompanied by legwarmers, don't you think?
 *Note- the above picture was taken from the penalty

 In addition to legwarmers, I have been trying to perfect a pair of crocheted socks for my little one.  Her dolly was helping me out a bit.  That's her new Waldorf doll (sans clothes, because my daughter felt dolly was more comfortable in her "polka bot" underwear) that she got for Christmas.  If you haven't already checked out Rosemary Garden Dolls, you definitely should! 

My newest pattern, which emerged from our semi failed ice skating attempt, the Lucia Legwarmers/Bootcuffs, is available in all three of my shops!
One of the great things about these legwarmers, is that they are reversible!  You can wear them either way for a different look.
They also are accented with adorable pom pom ties, which let's face it, make everything a little cuter, and they have two options for the bottoms.
They also make excellent boot cuffs!
So, if you're on the hunt for a cute new accessory for these cooler months, look no further!  Make them in a few different colors; they work up super fast!
I have a few other new patterns up my sleeve for the new year, so stay tuned!
