FO Friday: Boot Toppers!

As you may recall, I recently purchased a few skeins of Manos Wool Clasica via Craftsy Deals.  Once I saw them in person, I knew they wouldn't remain in my stash for long! This discontinued colorway, Lily Pad, was the perfect choice for some cabled boot toppers - I love the way the neutral tones allow the splashes of red to pop. I also like the way it knit up; I usually avoid variegated yarns because I'm not a fan of the way they tend to pool, but as you can see, this colorway knits up as more mottled than pooled. I used this free pattern from Manos on Ravelry for Wavy Cable Boot Toppers. It's super-fast and easy, and you can easily customize it to fit whatever boots you like!

Earlier this week, there were several more Manos Craftsy Deals in varying colors of Wool ClasicaRittenhouse and Silk Blend. Hopefully you were able to snap up a few skeins for yourself (I know I had to resist the urge to buy more)!

Thanks for joining me for FO Friday - you can see more FO inspiration here!
