darn spammers!

I've had to put our blog comments on word verification because we've gotten some spam in the comments. I hope this will completely fix this problem.

My first pair of clogs are finished!

Sorry I'm late to the party. I cranked on these over Thanksgiving. I have more details on my blog - IndigoMuse Knits - about tips and hints for working this pattern as I got stuck in a few places. The yarn used in the pair below is Patons Merino Denim Marl, Cascade 220 off white (the one that felts) and Galway Heathers in Dk Brown. Inspite of the fact that I used three very different yarns (quite a risk when felting), they felted very nicely together. I didn't use beads because I'm planning to needle felt designs on the slippers for my various relatives. I'll post more pictures of that process later. I've got several other pairs to finish in the next few weeks so I'd better get busy. Best wishes on your clogs!

Can't Wait

Hi All
Brand new to the group, but love felting and knitting. I have purchased the pattern and will hopefully have the yarn and beads within a week. Can't wait to make these outrageous clogs..

Hello all..
I haven't worked on this in about a week, but here's the progress I've made thus far.

Sorry if the alignment is all wonky. I'm not used to Blogger.

The yarn is knitpicks wool of the andes in hyacinth, chambray, and amethyst heather.

making progress

Here's a photo of the progress on my first clog. This is a very interesting pattern and I'm still not sure if I'll be able to follow it but I'm trying to take it one step at a time and it seems to be easy to follow if I just go step by step and try not to overthink it. I really like the colors I picked. They will be colorful and warm once felted and fitted to my feet.
Anyone else have progress pics?
