Progress Report: Royal Blue Cabled Sweater and Striped Tights

Last week I showed you my new project plans on Instagram (If you're not following me there, I'm @GenniSimon):

In the meantime, I already have this:

Which I think will be fun as leggings a little bit like this:

Clearly, there were some fit issues with them, so I made some notes and am pretty confident I can improve on the second version. 

I will probably do thinner stripes on the tights than the ones in that sketch if I can take all of that extra work.

What are your plans for this week?
