Leg warmers and thigh highs

image

These are my leg warmers. I knit them on a train in January whilst traipsing around on my Sister tour. I saw both my sister and sister-in-law and took a lot of trains to do that! So I made these to pass the time. Plus, it was a cold winter. It’s always nice to have some extra layers in such weather!

imageThese are my thigh highs. Loosely based on rugby socks I was really just trying to use up some odds and ends in my yarn stash. It’s why the feet don’t quite match. They fit well though. And seeing as we’re on day whatever of freezing rain I’m very thankful that I can add these to my layers of leg protection!

In case you’re wondering why the feet are weird they’re both stirrup-socks at their base.
