Pattern help

I haven't gotten far enough yet to be much help with this pattern. I'm at the third bead row and I'll post a pic soon. There are a couple other places where you might look for help with the pattern. Both Craftster and Knitter's Review have KAL threads going. There's not much interest yet but hopefully there will be soon. There are a few people who are saying they want to knit the pattern that just need to get started.
Be sure to post pictures of your yarns and beads once you get them so others can encourage you and feed off your ideas. Most of all, enjoy your clog knitting.

Hi Everyone!

Hopefully we'll get some more crafty peoples to join us! Thursday I'm buying yarn to make at least three pairs of these, so I should be able to get some pics on here soon. Anyone else knitting these for presents?

Over hurdle one

I got yarns and beads to start my Curiously Clever Clogs! The beads are boring and matchy matchy but I think they'll dress up the red and make them more interesting than just plain red clogs. In case the picture isn't right on your screen, those are red, green and purple skeins of Cascade 220 and two sizes of red glass beads. I'll use the red for the top, purple for the bottom part and green for the inside. I love red and green together and I think the purple will be less predictable than black. The green is almost all balled up so I should be able to cast on tonight. I read through the first part of the pattern again and it should be an interesting knit. I'm looking forward to seeing lots of different colors and yarn choices as this pattern starts to get knitted by others besides me. Be sure to add your finished slippers to the gallery on the stitch diva site.

Oh, and if you have links to yarns or beads or felting tutorials, send me those links so I can start working on the sidebar linkage.

I'm already planning my second pair!
