My First FO's of 2008
Made up a pair of legwarmer socks for my Aunt, who, due to a old car accident, has some pinched nerves in her legs and was complaining about keeping her legs warm in the wintertime.

You're such a genial nephew. They came out very nice, did you use a ribbing or thermal stitch for the legwarmer portion.

Ribbing, not familiar with the thermal stitch. used 1x1 ribbing on the leg, then 2x2 ribbing at the ankle.

I wish you were my nephew, my legs freeze from mid-September to late May. Those are spiffy leg warmers!
