I have, sort of, the knitting version of “my eyes are bigger than my stomach” syndrome! I want to knit everything, and in my mind I am. I have so many projects on needles, and so many patterns and books, with yarn to last 2 lifetimes. I guess I wouldn’t have it any other way. Sometimes it’s frustrating and other times it’s heavenly. I love all my projects, even the old ones that aren’t done yet.
Here are a pair of boot toppers that my daughter in law wanted in Seattle Seahawk colors. She and my son, watch all the games, always treat themselves to tickets to a couple of games in the season, and sometimes go tailgating in Seattle. She wanted these to wear with her Hunter’s.
I have lots of blue and green yarns, but she picked my Hazel Knits Cadence that I picked up on my trip to Fiber Gallery. We also picked the Churchmouse Yarns & Teas Boot Toppers pattern, but did not care to have the stirrup on the bottom. So away I went.
I am a tight knitter, so I had to go up a needle size and do a stretchy bind off on these. I picked up a couple of tips on color work from Sheila Joynes that I am happy with and it all turned out well. Kim is happy!
