Okay, so I have this glut of argyle socks (i think they're an acrylic blend--they made me feets schweaty) that have some serious holes in them. But the tops are still good.  Got any ideas of what to do with them?

I also have two pair of super-tall, super-soft, 70's basketball socks (one pair with red stripes, one with yellow and blue stripes) that I wore to death as a teenager, and I have never been able to part with them despite the fact that my whole foot can go through them.  I thought about framing them, but if you guy shave better suggestions, I would love to hear them.

I'd cut the feet off the argyles, add a thumb slit and call them arm warmers/fingerless gloves. As for the softy basket ball socks, if you cam bear to cut the feet off, I'd sew one end shut, fill with flax, sew the other one shut and use them as neck wraps and/or eye pillows.

I second the arm wamer  idea.

Dom: "This guy was a nightmare to work with, the Balrog. He had a huge trailer, never came out, never bought a round when we went to the bar, do you remember?"

You could also just cut off the feet of the baseball socks and use them as leg warmers.  I think that would be cute.  (Although you may have to hem them so they don't completely unravel, and that may look weird.)

*lightbulb goes on* Now that I think about it, I have the perfect yarn to just knit some baseball sock leg warmers.  Thanks for the idea  Smiley


p.s. I third the arm warmer idea.  Agyle armwarmers sound sweet.
