So eventually I have got round to finishing the felting of the clogs that I started aaaages ago. I really like the look of these clogs and I am glad that they are done, they are warm and very comfy and my house is cold. Well, not cold, but we've turned the thermostat down and are wearing jumpers. I would have preferred the slippers to be slightly shorter at the toe, but I'm done with felting them now. The felting didn't turn out quite as well as I would have liked, which is probably why they were banished to the back of the work box for so long. Felting in the washing machine may be quicker, but it left some unevenness that I don't like but didn't seem to be able to change by hand afterwards. Meh. It may be a while before I felt anything again. Aside from that, these were great fun to make, a very interesting pattern. My Denises were a great help, as at one point you end up with loads of stitches on holders and three 9mm needles on the go.
Pattern: Felted Clogs from Fiber Trends
Yarn: Lambs Pride Worsted in Seafoam and Turkish Olive
I'd like to add here a bit of a plug for Gill at the Woolly Workshop for amazing service. I ordered my Interweave subscription yesterday and lo and behold! this morning a magazine (containing a rather nice felted bag, I notice) arrived on my doorstep. Thanks, miss.
