Paved Boot Toppers

December 18, 2014

Paved boot toppers

My daughter Hunter adores her preschool teachers.  When I dressed her up and sent her off on her first day of school, I could only hope that she would like it.  She absolutely loves it, and her teachers are a huge part of that.  Hunter listens to them in ways she would never listen to me, enjoys activities that keep her busy and learning every day, and above all these women really care about my kid.

Paved Boot Toppers

For these great teachers this Christmas I am knitting, because that’s the best way I know to show my appreciation for all that they do.  They are three lovely women who often wear tall boots (when they aren’t wearing practical footwear for running after 3-5 year olds!).  So I bring you Paved, a perfect little cabled boot topper.


What are boot toppers you ask?  They are short little leg warmers that peek out of the top of your sexy boots without the bulk of a thick sock.  I whipped up two pairs up in no time!  With braided cables and garter stitch they have a textured simplicity.  They knit up quickly and are a perfect fashionable accessory for the ladies on your list.
