I can't really explain my obsession with making leg warmers for C. But, I do love making them and then putting them on her chunky, beautiful leggies! They're a quick project, they let me repurpose all sorts of things, and they help me keep my baby's legs warm on super cold days like today.
Mostly I've been using old, out-grown pants (the ones above) or onesies that I cut and stitch in one way or another. But, recently a friend gave me some old socks, and I pretty much went nuts. On one pair I picked up stitches and knitted a cuff, but then I figured out that I could use a bit of the sock foot to make a very professional looking cuff (the ones below). I'm irrationally pleased by this.
