Fiber art made from sustainable, local materials.

A recent knitting (impractical leg warmers)

I've been testing out my patience for fair isle (and not for the first time), via the creation of these leg tube thingies.  They came out cute, and were a good use for a small selection of my recycled/hand-dyed yarns, such as I invariably have hanging around.  Even in the Pacific Northwest, it's definitely not seasonally appropriate to bust these out; however, I was entertained. And isn't that the point?

I used this pattern as a start:
Departures--aside from the obvious stopping before it became a sock part--include changing the actual fair isle pattern to this weird little blank rabbit thingy, and upping the needle to a US size 7.

Ignore the the artful blurring; this photo probably best represents the colors.
