Sweater to Leggings/Boot Socks

This has been done before, but not by me. :)  I had a heavy tweedy sweater that I never wore but thought the sleeves would be great for legwarmers/boot socks.  It did involve a little sewing because I put the wrist edge at the knee, and then had to take them in at the ankle.  Then I cut off the finished edge that had been on the sleeve cap and sewed it to the newly cut raw edge at the ankle.  Of course that made it get all stretched out but you can't really tell when they're on.


 
 
They also help to take up some of the extra room in my boots.  They make wide-calf boots but not narrow-calf, and mine look a little silly with all that air space.
