Everyone needs a great pair of boots, or maybe two or three. Or possibly more? These great toppers work with all sorts of different styles of boots, since they can be worn two ways: the cuff attached with wrong side facing out folds right side out over a boot top, or turn them upside down with a lace top and cabled mid-section like a heavy sock. The cables allow extra stretch to accommodate a wide range of calf sizes up to 15 inches in circumference.

As always, weighing your yarn before starting is recommended when you have limited amounts of yarn; the warmers shown used almost a whole skein.

Pattern includes written and charted instructions.

Read on about my project! This is the eleventh pattern in an eBook subscription.

One knitter.

One box of yarn.

Endless possibilities.

Welcome to my oddments project! Everyone has them: stray balls and skeins of yarn here and there. They’re different weights and different colors. Definitely not a sweater’s worth of anything, let alone a shawl’s worth or a pair of socks. You can’t imagine what to do with them, but you don’t want to throw them away. Well, I’m no different; Kathy Elkins of WEBS sent me a box of yarn to swatch. It stared at me reproachfully and demanded my respect: riches of wool, silk, alpaca and other blends. And an idea kept niggling at my mind (for a couple of years, no less). And so I finally gave in.

This is my project: to use this box of yarn and to respect the fiber. The rules are simple: I use what’s in the box, no matter the weight and the color, no matter what the fiber content is (luckily for me, there’s some really nice stuff). I can add buttons and other little embellishments, but that’s it. I may not go out and buy other yarn or beg Kathy for anything else. I have 18 balls of yarn and my imagination. There will be 15-18 projects. Some will be easy to dream up. Others? Not so much! But fun knitting for you, all the same!

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending November 15, 2014. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern, but look for the first pattern in mid November 2013. All patterns will have charts (if needed) and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of oddments. These are small projects, not big ones: the perfect size for an evening or two of knitting in front of the fire or sitting on the porch sipping a lemonade! So…knitters: pull out those oddments!
