      I remember wearing these when I was in junior high, they were so "in"! I would probably wear them when visiting my family up north where the temperature falls below zero in January.

      Thank you! I love leg warmers and I have dozens of skeins of yarn and what better past time? Would have been a good thing to do during this election! Maybe next time. ^
