I really love the idea of using adult socks and chopping off the feet, or taking the arms off of old sweaters…

High five to Design Mom for putting my leg warmer quest out there! Just in time, too, it's chilly here! :)

Not sure about solid colors. There's also tutorials out there of making them from the sleeves of old sweaters.

I bought a bunch of funky ones at Target, clearanced out, and just cut off the feet. I was going to hem them or, as suggested in Amanda Soule's first book, sew the tops of another pair of socks to the cut end (which is exactly how my $16 baby legs brand ones look like they're made), but the cut end just rolls neatly and we've left them like that. The adult-sized socks have a nice scrunch to them that a childs' size would lack.

I just took an old sweater, cut the arms off, sewed a seam at the cut, and strung elastic through. SUPER easy and they turned out darling!!! Here's a link to the pictures. http://urbanpioneerwoman.blogspot.com/2009/10/make-your-own-baby-legs.html

Cut just above the heel and fold up to the inside and sew them. I imagine the same could be done using the appropriate sized socks or maybe even the arms of an old sweater with elastic added.

But, my daughter's teacher told her they are not allowed with uniforms. I suggest you check with your school before you buy.

also, you can usually ask the sellers to make a seperate listing for you in the colors/fabrics you prefer, so if you wanted to go whole hog and get some cashmere ones, for example, with little navy hearts on cream background, you could.
