FO & new pattern: Boots or Hearts

The boot toppers are done and the pattern is released!

I give you Boots or Hearts (named for my favourite Tragically Hip song).  This is a pattern I've had in my head for a few years and I can't believe how long it's taken me to actually make them, since they knit up so darn quick (just a few evenings). A few cables, some eyelets... my boots look extra fabulous now!
They are knit in Stray Cat (sport weight) so they add a nice bit of warmth without being too bulky. But the main thing is, they protect my tights from getting snagged on the top edge of my boots. I've had these boots for a decade now, but I rarely wear them because the wreck my tights. But not any more! Bring on the cold weather!
The pattern is on sale half price until October 31st. No code it needed, discount will pop up in the cart. Now I'm thinking I need a white pair too.. and maybe grey...

And while we're on the subject of pattern releases. The random number generator has chosen Bridget as the winner of the Spring Garden Collection contest!!! Bridget, as soon as I hit publish, I'll email you for details! Congrats and thanks to all who entered!!!

They are fabulous. I love the heart hook on your boots too.

I think a pair in red would be good too!

Congrats!
