I’m pretty sure that I wrote about the Felted Clogs when I first came across the pattern but here’s the short version of this story. One night I was clicking on Ravelry projects done by other knitters and I came across a knitter who had made a whole bunch of felted clogs. I followed the pattern and found Felted Clogs and Felted Clogs for Children. Even if you’re not a knitter, click on the adult version and look at the ones that have wool applique on them. They’re so nice . . but I doubt I’d ever do that.
Anyway, I wrote the lady who had made them and she very graciously shared a lot of info with me. She prefers the Lamb’s Pride wool for making and felting these so I ordered some. It arrived while I was in MO but I have these on my “to do” list. Since they’re not big projects, I can make these before I finish two more sweaters. I love it when I make up the rules as I go!
I ordered pink, gray, purple and orange yarn. Don’t ask me why the orange yarn didn’t make it into the picture. Heck . . don’t even ask me why I ordered orange yarn. Who wants orange clogs??
The lady also told me she sews these little suede pads/soles onto the bottom of the feet and that helps them last longer so I ordered those. I’m assuming I’ll knit the clogs, then felt them in the washer/dryer, then sew the pads on last.
I’m ready to give these a try. Once I’ve made at least one pair with the Lamb’s Pride, I’ll probably try a pair with Cascade 220 since I have plenty of that on hand.
