What do you do when knee socks are .62?

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.

It's beyond easy. I've got a pretty user friendly machine and I'm mostly self taught. I don't usually buy patterns. I'm needing to learn to knit/crochett. I want to just use a loom and I've heard they're easy as well. Maybe one day. I wanted to make some infant hats, but don't know if I'll get around to it before October.

I meant to comment on this days ago, and kept getting distracted. I wish I could sew too..I've tried with my moms machine and I'm just not "that" crafty. Wink
BUT crochet is easy! I taught myself in like..an hour on youtube. I wouldn't bother with a loom, a hook is really easy.

Maybe I'll make it a goal for this winter to learn. I've got so many projects floating around in my head for Kessler's nursery that I've got to focus. I'm quite ADD when it comes to projects!
