HSA29U Austrian Lace Stirrup Leg Warmers (aka Sock-Not Leggings)

"A unique concept in socks," reports Erickson-Schweitzer. "Austrian Lace Stirrup Leg Warmers (aka Sock-Not Leggings) are nice as a pretty cover-up on legs without the bulk of a complete sock. The tailored twist-stitch lace patterns enhance the leg portion, and becomingly conform to the shape of the calf. Twist-stitch ribbing on the foot portion hugs ankle and arch. Altogether, a practical fashion alternative for warmth and wearability."

These look quite as spectacular in a gently variegated yarn as they would in a solid colour, and should last far longer than a conventional sock. Great for fans of invisible darning... you can invisibly darn the invisible heel and toe!
