Cables, Rainbows and Festive Leg Warmers

I have a new favorite (albeit incredibly time-consuming) type of longies- Semi-solids with wide lattice cables down the legs. These little things took me about a week to knit, but they're GORGEOUS and so incredibly worth the time. I'm hoping the mama I traded the YYMN for shows me action shots, because I am in love with them. As soon as there's time in my knitting queue, I'm doing a pair for my youngest.



Not a great picture of the cable work detail, but oh well:



Leg warmers for my big girl:



More leg warmers-

Two pairs of these:



And two pairs of these:



A size 7/8 interlock/thermal knit raglan:





...And my current WIP is a 4T Gemütlich for a trade with this yarn and button combo:

Thanks, everyone!
I'm trying to figure out which of my solids/semi-solids to knit up next. Those cables came out better than I envisioned.
