It's January 2024 (and eek, when did -that- happen!)  We've finally had snowfall that has stuck around; and the weather's reliably below freezing now, which makes it the perfect time to dig out the Diamond Lace Boot Toppers for January's Featured Pattern and Knit Along!

Don't worry, if you don't have the pattern, it's 50% off through the month of January!

These boot toppers can be mostly attributed to curiosity. Before I got into knitting as an adult, I’d never even heard of such a thing! But, once I got into the online knitting community, I quickly found out that boot toppers are “a thing”, and a thing I wanted to try out in a Canadian Winter (spoiler, they're awesome!)

Throw in some inspiration from the good folks over on Patreon, a couple of hours of knitting time, and you have a pair of Diamond Lace Boot Toppers!

Sample is shown in size S, and worked in Spun Right Round Merino Worsted, which is sadly discontinued. When looking for a substitute, I'd suggest a multi-ply light worsted wool yarn (acrylic also works up well!)

You can buy the pattern through Etsy,  in my Web Shop, or, on my (new!) Patreon Shop, the discount is available on all platforms. (Psst, Featured Pattern Subscribers and above on Patreon can just download the pattern for free from the Patreon Shop!)

 Now, onto the Knit-Along!

 For the month of January every finished pair of boot toppers has a chance to win a $25 Gift Card from Knit Picks (US/Canada only at the moment, sorry!) or, 4 patterns of the winner's choice from my Web Shop!  To enter on the blog, simply post a link to a picture of your completed boot toppers by January 31rst, 2024.  Please note that the boot toppers don't have to have been started in January, just finished in January, -- so it's a good reason to pull out any WIPs!

I always look forward to seeing your Finished Objects! Please post them to various social media with #SarahDawnsDesigns, and #SarahDawnsDesignsJan2024 and/or share them to the Facebook Group or to the Discord! That way, I can see the awesome that you folks make!

    Hi, I posted before but don't see my link. Shall I post again?

    1. That's alright, it should show up now - I have the blog comments set to moderation, ever since I had a rash of spammers trying to post links. So I'm just getting to the comments and such that came in over the weekend! (But thank you for checking in, it means I don't miss your comments!)
