Fact: I always have cold feet.
Fact: I always wear socks and cosy slippers around the house, and thick cosy socks under my boots when I go out.
I really liked the idea of having some leg warmers for wearing with leggings and/or under my boots. I'd seen loads of tutorials for them on Pinterest so I pinned a few and a little while ago I found some chunky wool that I knew would be perfect.
This wool is super soft and sooooo cosy! The pattern I used was from here - yes, they're baby legwarmers...I just added to all the sizes as I really only needed a pattern for guidance. They worked up really quickly. Unfortunately, I tend to move on from craft to craft and stopped a few months ago after only having made 1 leg warmer! Last week, however, I really thought I ought to get the other one finished, so in just an evening, I made up the other one and had a pair of gorgeously soft and chunky leg warmers!
These were so quick to make and I really fancy trying out some different colours, perhaps with a thinner wool for a more slouchy look.
They even look great when worn with my boots :)
