What do you do when you are given a giant bag of yarn, including the considerable start to a sweater? There was one ball of matching yarn in the bag and I simply couldn’t bring myself to frog all of this gorgeous cabled work.

What if I completed them and turned them into leg warmers for a certain ballerina in my life?

They are still a bit big at the top. I’ll have to sew a seam down the back once she receives and pins them to fit. But bespoke leg warmers from an abandoned sweater? I’m calling it a win.
