leg warmers

I saw these in an old Knit 1 magazine and instantly fell in love.  I love the look of socks or leg warmers peeking out over tall boots.


Of course they looked cuter on the stick-thin model, but I still think I can pull them off :)


They are knit flat and then laced up on the side with leather straps, which I think ups the cool factor, don't you?  And they actually do keep my legs warm.  Bonus!  Was nice to make a little something just for me in the midst of this busy Christmas season!

They are cool! And I think they look lovely on you, no stick thin model needed! But I have to say OMG leg warmers?! We're back to 1984 aren't we!
