Upcycled Sweater Socks

I saw this cute winter idea on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot. Basically, I cut the sleeves off my too-small sweater and used them for socks in my boots. If you have any old sweaters, this is a great way to upcycle them. I think I can actually use the rest of the sweater for something else, so I will keep you posted on that.

1. Lay the sweater out on a flat and even surface.

2. Cut the length of sleeve you want for your socks. I have mostly ankle boots--even for my winter boots--so I didn't really need to make them long at all. I cut where the ribbing stopped on the sleeve.

3. Slip on over your pants, and voilà! You can fold them down, stretch them out, or whatever you want to do. Makes a nice leg or arm warmer, too!
