easily. I live in LA, and even in the middle of this unusually warm summer, the slight temperature drop at night is enough that by morning my knees are freezing and I have to put on warm sweat pants (much to the bewilderment of my wife, it being the middle of summer, and us not having AC).
As you can imagine, this problem only gets worse in the winter. Obviously, I bundle up appropriately when it's cold. Other than my knees, I have no trouble keeping warm. I've asked MeFi what to wear under jeans before
, with the consensus being flannel-lined jeans, real wool, and real silk.
However, since I live in LA, the mild winters make it easy to get overheated with too much on. The only thing I really want to keep warm are my knees. They get so
I've sewn insulating fabric into the knee one pair of jeans, and it helped, but made them useless for summer. I've purchased these
acrylic knee warmers, but they slide off or bunch up and generally aren't that great. I'm hoping MetaFilter has a solution for me that is convenient, practical, and not too pricey.
