Dozen Pairs of Clogs Finished. Total finished 18 Pairs.


I finished 18 total pairs of shoes. Whew. Now to make a pair for me! What did I learn? DO NOT and I repeat this DO NOT mix yarns. Mystery wool does not felt at the same rate as Patons Wool. Results? Tops went quicker than bottoms and it was a constant stretching battle. Still not sure they will be ok. Might have to make that pair over again.

Beautiful! They are amazing! Is that the Fiber Trends pattern? I just made my first pair - they don't look that great - a few mysterious lumps/bumps... wow I wish I was so production!

Very nice!! Gotta get that pattern. Lots of toasty toes in the future!

About mystery wool. First a smidge of a swatch to ensure that it felts is in order. Then to control it somewhat, use a strand of mystery wool with a strand of known wool. Many times I use a stand of an oddball on the inside sole of clogs to spark it up. And use it up.
