Felted Clogs



Pattern: Fiber Trends Felted Clogs
Wool: 100purewool merino, two strands held together

I used about 1.5 hanks of the main colour and almost an entire hank for the soles. This is a fun pattern to knit, and fast too. I knit each slipper in an evening.

One Mitten Done, One to Go

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I worked some short-rows on the palm, thinking they would improve the fit, but I don't think they make any difference, so I doubt I'll bother with them on Mitten #2. These two photos show the colour quite accurately, lovely Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport "Tahoe".

New Project

Fingerless mittens, knit in Lorna's Laces Sport "Tahoe". Pattern, such as it is, is my own. Sixty stitches for the arm/wrist part, then a few increases at the base of the thumb. I'll do a little tube for around the thumb and finish low on the fingers with a few rows of garter stitch to match the cast-on edge.

One of these Socks is not like the Other....

Can you spot the difference? I realized I'd reversed the SSK's with the K2tog's more than halfway through sock #2. I was not in the mood to start over, so these are my unique blue socks.
