Hi this is the first FO that I am posting on this site, so I am a real noob at this (and I can't post pictures in my posts yet). I made this pair of boots last Christmas as a gift to my sister (I know I am a few months behind huh!). They were the first pair of shoes I ever knit. They were actually really easy to make, to my surprise, and I followed the instructions pretty much exactly.

I only changed a few things. I used different yarn, it calls for Plymouth Galway and Foxy (which is insanely expensive) and I used 6 balls of Cascade 220 in medium rose color and 4 balls of Jo-Ann Sensations Mink in camel (purchased from joann.com). Also instead of attaching pompoms to the ends of the laces I added horn beads, which I got from joann.com too. Lastly, I decided not to add the embroidery to the toe.

I am happy with the way they came out and my sister really liked them too! There is more info on my blog about them if you would like to know more and see pictures.

(I can now post pictures yaya!)

Oh, wow! I'm amazed, that is just so cool. I've never seen knit boots before.
Great job!

The Mowat Mukluks pattern only comes in U.S. women's sizes 5/6, 7/8, and 9/10. Mine felted up pretty accurately to the size I made, so I don't know if they would work for you. BUT recently I purchased another felted boot knitting pattern called Big Snugs by Pick Up Sticks. I am going to make a pair of these for myself very soon and the pattern goes up women's sizes 10.5-12. You should check these out, they're really cute! Would anyone be interested if I starting a knitalong for them?

Thanks for the comments everyone! Since I hadn't seen really any of these completed, I was afraid that people thought they were too hideous to knit!
