Leg Warmers - Or .... ??

Well, who would have thought that leg warmers would ever come back into fashion? But they have - i guess everything does? - and here we have some unique and eclectic handmade leg warmers for auction at just a time when a large proportion of the world is needing help to keep warm.

This is an odd pair. Mandy, who made and donated them, describes them as both odd and experimental.

They look great as very individual leg warmers - leg warmers of character! - and will be really toasty warm ...

... but Mandy suggests that they could also be used for something rather different.... stuffed with old socks and used as draft excluders? Christmas stockings? toilet roll or plastic bag holders?

There are some great colours and textures here in the knitting - and a range of yarns including wool, cotton, acrylic, mohair and chenille. They would definately be very cosy.

The measurements of the leg warmers, when laid flat , is approximately 24 inches/61cm long and 6 inches/15cm wide.

The auction begins at 9am on Monday January 18th and will end at 9pm, on Sunday January 24th New York time. The highest bidder before that time will win.

Bids start at $10 please.

Postage would be: UK - $2.70; Europe - $3; Worldwide outside Europe - $4.50 airmail, $2.50 surface mail. Airmail worldwide from the UK should take from 5 days, surface mail takes from 6 weeks.
