Flashdance was on one of the many Showtime movie channels recently (thanks, FIOS!!!). it's amazing seeing an old movie you haven't watched in years and then you remember why you loved it. for me it was the 80's hair,the gorgeous Jennifer Beals working in a welding factory and of course her ballet audition.
I've always loved legwarmers but can never find a pair that are super long for the extra slouchy look. so of course after watching Flashdance again I thought "duh...why not make a pair yourself?". after searching and searching...and more searching (seriously it took me 2.5 days)....I found this pattern from Lion Brand, Sausalito Stirrup Socks:very different from what's in the stores now and would keep my feet warm when wearing flats in this freezing NYC winter weather. luckily when I went to Lion Brand Studio, I found out they are having a 15% off sale for the yarn for the entire month of December. ^_^

here's JLo's "I'm Glad" video just for kicks (notice she has on stirrup legwarmers too)...
