These clogs were a quick knit, for sure! The first clog is a bit of an adventure, with all it's M1's and wrap and turns. But once you get the lay of the land, the second clog was more relaxing. There are lot's of "parts", ie, first sole, toe shaping, cuff, second sole, so you are always quickly moving on to the next thing.
The felting was a challenge. I would LOVE to hear from those experienced in felting, because it took FOR-ever, and the clogs are still a bit large - I decided to call it a night at 11pm after who knows how long they had been agitating (in a zippered case with a bit of detergent). Could it have been that the water was warm-hot and not hot? My old machine doesn't agitate aggressively enough? My water is treated and very soft? The Lamb's Pride? My gauge? Oh well, they will fit great with the socks from my previous post - can't wait for winter!
I will definately try these again! I think my husband would love a pair. Anyone experienced cloggers out there who can talk about adding leather soles?
