Ava's Legwarmers

I've started on my Christmas presents for my nieces with this project. This "pattern" is simply something I made up in my head. There is 2 inches of ribbing followed by 6 inches of stockinette and 2 more inches of ribbing. I cast on 20 stitches for a 7" ankle and increased 4 stitches when I had 2 inches of stockinette stitch, then another 4 stitches when I had 4 inches of stockinette in order to accomodate a 10" calf. I made these 10" long for a little growing room.

I knit the ribbing in size 10 DPNs and the stockinette in size 13 DPNs. The yarn is Jo-Ann's Sensations Angel Hair. I don't have the color number or name because my little girl got a hold of the label, and it has subsequently disappeared. Let's just call it purple!

This is how far I have gotten on the second.
