Knitting Emergency!

I enjoyed knitting Tank's socks so much that I decided I should have another pair on hand for all my fidgeting needs. So I cast on for the ever popular Jaywalker socks. Scroll down that page for a wee photo of a finished pair, or alternately, here is my no-where-near-finished pair...




So far they have been the perfect combination of bright spring colors (I'm not sure the lovely blues and minty greens are showing up very true, alas) and easy but not boring knitting.

And then I took them along on last Friday's Girls Climbing Day. A fellow climbing gal asked if I was making legwarmers, an actual useful item to have along for spring climbing and its weather fluctuations. So now I'm stumped, do I go ahead with the socks, that, at most, will get worn once every two weeks (hey, we have a LOT of laundry to get through!) or do I bite the 80's bullet and knit some springy legwarmers that practically never need a laundry break? I'm partially nervous about the legwarmers, due to the sheer monotony of two long tubes, and the pattern winging part to fit them over my below pictured (and slightly furry) athletic calves...


Any input from the peanut gallery? Eeek, I'm getting fidgety!

...and I think the dire experience with the daycare board has driven you into some wacky, hunkered down mode that is strange to say the least...
Love,
Dad, who hopes you return soon to mashing those that need it!!!

Although the Fug Girls would shriek in horror, I am voting solidly "legwarmers"... hey, the Laundry Gods are merciless.
