I'm a total nerd, and at one point, I was hoping to build a career in the gaming industry. Can I tell you how much loved the movie, Wreck-it-Ralph? Seriously, I loved the movie as soon as I saw the trailer for it.

The movie is about how the bad guy of an arcade game (Ralph) no longer wants to be the bad guy anymore. So he went rogue so that he could figure out how he could become a good guy. But of course, that becomes a whole set of other problems.

The movie was SO GOOD. You can tell how excited I was when they said that they were making a Wreck-it-Ralph 2. This time, Ralph and his friend Vanellope explore the internet!

You know when you're trying to explain to someone (who's never turned on a computer) what the Internet is and how hard it is? Yeah, we've all been there.

Visually seeing a cartoon concept of the Internet world come to life was so much fun. This movie was just such a treat to be honest. The movie concept was GENIUS!

While I was super excited about the second Wreck-it-Ralph movie release, I didn't end up watching it in the theatres.

For some reason, I'm just not a big fan of watching movies in the theatres. I much prefer to be in the comfort of my own home, munching on a bowl of popcorn and in my pyjamas. I also like the freedom of pausing the movie when I'm in need of a bathroom break. 

I am totally a comfy princess type of girl! I loved it so much that I even made myself a Princess Aurora striped sweater that was inspired by the comfy princess scene.

I really enjoyed the Wreck-it-Ralph movies. Heck, I loved them before I even watched them!

It's no secret, but for those who don't know, I am a geek at heart. Super Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Street Fighter, etc. I love them all.

Vanellope's style is totally ME! I practically live in hoodies. Have you seen my amigurumi hoodie bunny

I already got the hoodies, but I decided to crochet these leg warmers inspired by Vanellope's leggings.

Hanson kept trying to convince me that they are a thing of the 80s and that they make me look like a backup dancer from Olivia Newton-John's music video. But I've started attending adult ballet lessons for approximately 3 weeks now and am really enjoying it.

And if I remember correctly... Off-duty ballerinas wear leg warmers, right?

I would have published this crochet pattern earlier if it wasn't for the lack of sunlight in the last week. It's impossible for me to take decent photos of the project under natural lighting when it's dark when I leave for work and dark when I return home.

The great thing about these slouchy, super comfy leg warmers is that there's no actual increasing/decreasing as one might think there was between the cuffs and the leg.

Instead, we achieved the slouchy part by simply changing to larger hook sizes. Hence why this crochet pattern calls for 3 different hook sizes: 4.0 mm, 5.0 mm, and 7.0 mm.
