Like I said, strange.
So you have to be prepared. It's fall, and you want to wear your boots, right? And the latest fashion is to have your boot sock cuffs come up over the top of your boots. But maybe it's too warm to wear a full wool sock. What's a girl to do? Make a boot cuff of course!
I found this nifty little pattern (Scalloped Boot Cuffs by Jenny Dickens, a really lovely pattern) on Ravelry, the Facebook of yarn. And it's very simple and works very quickly. In fact, I made most of this project during two episodes of Doctor Who. I probably would have finished them during a third if I did not have some studying that needed doing!
The yarn I used was some I had in my stash, Knit Picks Swish DK in Squirrel Heather. I am not sure I even used 70% of a skein, but gave that estimation just to be generous. I used a size I crochet hook.
