Project reStyle: Toesocks to armwarmers

Here's a little thing I made yesterday, before heading out to a coffee date. I sorted through my wardrobe the other day (one of the most emotional steps of pr365 so far) and realised I have a bunch of toesocks that I love because of their colors and motives, but never wear. I have never gotten used to the feeling of wearing them because I don't have much chance to do so. Since I wear at least two layers of tights/stockings/socks 99% of the time, toesocks are not so useful. (they would have to be the first layer where nobody can see them, I haven't tried it but I am almost sure wearing toesocks over normal socks is impossible. ^^)

Now I can wear them where everybody can see the cute reindeers and snowstars:

Hi! I saw your project on 100+ Clothes Recycling site. I love this idea...but for an odd reason! I have to wear a brace on my right hand to keep my thumb stable due to arthritis. It needs fabric between it and my skin. I have been figuring out different "socks" for my hand...this will work great without a lot of altering! Plus, as you mentioned, it comes in cute colors and motifs! Thank you for the idea!
