Toppers

The other day I needed a small, portable knitting project.  The project didn't have to be completely mindless, but it had to be something that didn't require a lot of thought.  A sock was the obvious choice, but then I remembered a little something my daughter had requested.


Boot toppers - quick, easy, instant gratification.  This project wouldn't have lasted for a full day of on-the-go knitting, but it was perfect for the amount of time I had.

The pattern is Boho Style Boot Toppers.  The yarn is Valley Yarns Amherst.


This design includes a simple cable to keep things interesting.  I may have to make another pair for good measure.

My color inspiration this week comes from the world of snow and ice. These footprints provide a unique blend of gray and blue.


Chilly.
