Buy them and make baby leg warmers!!!!! I couldn't pass up knee socks for .62 yesterday when I literally just read how to make leg warmers out of them. This pair is pretty good for a boy, but there was a black/grey/pink pair that I didn't pass up. I'll send a pair to my friend's 1 year old and thinking Abby could actually wear the other under skirts as leggings.
You could even handsew these if you don't have a sewing maching. They are so incredibly easy and there is very little sewing involved. Buying these in the store usually runs $8-$12.
