These are awesome!
I have some similar Uggs that are pink, they look almost identical.

Mine are the Mullberry.

Oh man, now I'm totally going to have to give in and buy the pattern, I want to make these! You did a fantastic job on them. :]

ohh those boots are fun!! 

the only recommendation is is knitting the upper garter stitch a little tighter (and maybe the atual shoe stitches aswell). i used a 10.5 us DPNs it called for 10us but i didnt have them. im not too sure how much that .5 makes a difference but i would go smaller still for next time.. only cause the next time i make them im making them as shoes for myself so i want them a little more solid.

make sure to show them off when you make them!

I also have been drooling over the pattern. I may spring for it soon, my skill level is beginning to get to shaped pieces.
