A few days ago, my husband Bob hurt his ankle. He had no idea how, but figured he'd sprained it. Today he decided it was hurting enough to warrant a trip to the urgent care center. Lo and behold, there's a broken bone. Now he's in a splint, and will see the orthopedist on Monday for a cast.
We keep our house pretty cool during the winter, and the splint is too big for any of his regular socks to fit over. So I fired up Wild Ginger's free accessory program, Wild Things!, and drafted a bootie that would fit over the splint. I cut it out of polar fleece, serged the two seams, and now his toes are nice and warm.
