I like to wear footless tights or leggings over fairly thin socks. The thin socks fit well in my shoes and are easily-replaced when they wear out. The leggings are so cozy with a dress or skirt. But something nice and bulky and hand-knit was needed between the socks and the leggings. Here's what I came up with:

This is my first go-round with using a round knitting loom. I used a blue (24 pegs) and worked with three strands of Meadow Muffins yarn, working stripes of approximately one inch. No fancy stitch work... I just followed the directions that came with the knitting loom.

Here's a close-up of the work. It shows that each stripe was actually made up of three closely-related colors. I used eight stripe colors, repeating once. Each boot topper used two ounces.

I really enjoyed using a circular knitting loom and plan to make more Boot Toppers. Next: I'll try working with two strands, one a constant color and the other will change as I knit. I will also use a different, more elastic method for binding off as using the bind-off directions that came with the loom resulted in a lower opening that I could just barely get my foot through.
