A long, long time ago (in a galaxy far away? No it was right here on Earth) I started a pair of legwarmers for my niece.
It took me so long to make any progress on them, that by the time I was anywhere near imagining being finished, her legs were too big for them.
So I decided to make them for my nephew! But by the time I started nearing the end of them AND the time of year he might actually be able to wear them, he was too big. I didn’t foresee him getting much use out of them, truth be told.
So instead the leg-warmers went to the new baby of my husband’s best friends.
