Accidental Legwarmers

These legwarmers, as the title says, came quite by accident. I cast on Merenkulkija socks for Alex, but when I reached the heel part I realized that I didn't have enough yarn for men size socks. I didn't want to buy more of the same yarn as I'm trying to destash a little, the cables looked quite nice - so I finished the socks into legwarmers. And because the yarn was a remnant skein from Gaby's tunic, they got together well as a set. And I'm knitting another pair of socks for Alex, I hope the yarns I've chosen (two other skeins remnant from big projects) will suffice.

Pattern: Merenkulkija
Yarn: Alize Lanagold Classic, 70 g
Needle: 3.5 mm
Time to knit: 6 days
