:laugh: Yeah, any cold weather can send me 'scurrying' to the thrift shops...........Currently, long johns/leggings are at the top of my list due to the cold weather we're having. I have 2 pairs,.
Wow! I never thought of this. I can't tell you how many sweater tights I"ve tossed because a toe poked through. Thanks for the idea! saves me a want right there.I figure if the foot wears I can always cut the foot off and still wear the tights more like leggings. Definately helps to keep me warm.
These are what I call sweater tights:

They are just thicker tights and can have different types of sweater stitching and designs on them. I found most of mine on sale. Definately worth it if you wear dresses/skirts or want an extra layer underneath pants in the winter time. Plus I do not have to sorry about putting on a pair of socks.
