Winter Leggings: PASS

It's been a couple decades since I wore leggings regularly. So I didn't know until the cold weather hit that spandex leggings would be no good for winter wear. I had to wear a pair of tights underneath, which defeats the purpose of leggings, no?

I finished this pair, in a heavy mystery knit fabric, just in time for the last few weeks of winter. They're a bit hot and itchy, and you can see the fabric recovery isn't stellar. But, hey, gray leggings!

This time around I wanted a smaller waistband and so applied the elastic directly to the top of the leggings, as suggested in the Cal Patch tutorial. Sewing casings is the worst. This method is awesome.
