A little boy in my life has just hit the crawling stage - a couple of pair of leg warmers will pad those little knees and protect his legs too glad of the pattern and the suggestion. For some reason we tend to think of leg warmers and dancers or as a fashion statement. This is a great idea. Thanks for the suggestion and the pattern
