    You do darling work. I ride a motorcycle and I can’t wait to make myself some leg, warmers for our winter travels [ and yes we prefer to travel in freezing, snow blowing white outs]. We’re not weird [maybe] but we just detest the heat.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your patterns

    I’ve made #3 in a creamy white/sky blue mix softer yarn. I made them for a 2 year old, along with a slouch beanie, but have yet to gift them! They’re really cute and crocheted up quick! I hope they fit! :)

    The Alicia leaflets download isn’t working. I plan on making these for my daughter trip to Boston in a week! Can you fix it ?
