I have always found it a shame that once boot weather starts, pretty handknit socks are sadly hidden until the next sock-showing season. Boot toppers are my answer to this problem. Let the boots hide the store-bought socks and allow the lushness of cables and frilly edges peek out where they can be enjoyed. Wrists a tad chilly? These can also be slipped over the hands to peek out from under coat sleeves. Add a Felted Leaf Brooch (page 23) for added flair. This pattern can be found in Mags Kandis' Gifted.
