Manresa Legwarmers, 2nd try

After having completed my 1st pair of manresa legwarmers at the end of january, I started a second version with thicker yarn and a larger needle, because the first ones didn't fit me so well. They were kind of too tight. Today I finished the second pair!
I ran out of red yarn when I would have needed only 2 or 3 meters and knitted the rest with the black yarn. I’m only glad that it did suffice for knitting the fair isle parts.
The legwarmers are really really warm and thick because of the yarn weight, and it’s 100% wool, and this time they look ok on me! They look bulky but really okay. I didn’t block them yet.

It seems like I have compressed the photo too much. It did look better in Gimp!!
