Starting Over

Here WAS my progress on the clogs:

And here is my progress now:

I forgot to knit the wraps on the short rows so I ripped it all apart & I'm now starting over. I'm not loving this pattern but it's probably because I'm trying to knit beyond my expertise. I think the worst part though was trying to find the correct sized beads that also matched color-wise. I almost opted out on the beads, but these are for my Step-Daughter & she loves anything with "bling".

Hopefully next week I'll have some progress photos.

Oh No!!! I feel your pain... :(
At least it could be frogged...not like a bad facelift... :)
Your color choice is so pretty, I agree it is difficult to find the proper size bead holes but the end result will be worth it...Altho, I have contemplatedd enlisting the aid of sequins and beads and hand sewing.....AFTER I do one pair the proper way of course :)Look forward to seeing it done back up.

I wish I had frogged the first clog so I applaud you for doing so BEFORE felting. I'm on my third pair now and trust me, it DOES get easier. Can't wait to see how your turn out.

Have you repaired your clog? I have to take pics of my supplies, Cascade yarn..not sure about the beads. I am so involved in KALs my fingers are cramping from the knitting :) But it is a good pain

Yep, that looks about like my progress. Just ripped the outer sole right off!
Is it too late to join the KAL?
I don't think I can finish these CCCs without some moral support and guidance from fellow knitbloggers!
