Thigh high leg warmers

I got this yarn from Walmart the other day. I've been wanting to try it out since I first saw it, but it's a bit more pricey than I'm used to and couldn't justify spending money on myself (I always have a hard time with that). But, since my niece gave me money to take her to work (at Walmart) and I had the time to look, and I needed stuff anyway, and I was right there...well, I justified it. I bought my first skein of Lion Brand Tweed Stripes yarn in Lakeside. What to do, what to do? My husband suggsted I make myself a pair of socks with it. I thought "why not?" so off to find a pattern. I found one here, at the Lion Brand website. I worked up one side, modifying the pattern slightly, in about 2 days. Well, it took my till 1:00 this morning so does that still count as 2 days? Anyway, I slipped it on and it's still a bit baggy in places, but I showed my husband what I made. He looked horrified! I disappointedly sighed "you hate them!" to which he replied "I don't 'hate' them...I just won't go out in public with you when you're wearing them." *Ouch* So I wonder if I should make the other sock or not! Maybe I should unravel enough to make it a knee high? Maybe I should wear it anyway? What do you think?
