He didn't show up in time, so they ended up in the hot-tub! lol.



Fiber: Wool Barn's 100% double-pied wool in 500 yds teal and 500 yds grey
Needles: size 15 US circular needles (29'')
Contruction picks: wide foot & "bumper" sole.
Modifications: I did knit the extra row on the sole because I have a wide feet (I won't do it again next time though. I guess my feet aren't that wide). I also used size 15's instead of 13's because my yarn was a little thick, and I also saw a knitter who choose that size and her clog turned out great. I might choose another yarn for this pattern next time, too.


Yowzers! Even Michael Jordan couldn't wear these! It was actually amusing trying to walk around in these clogs prior to felting. Ha ha.

More pictures & clog-chatting on my blog here:

Thanks for taking a look! I look forward to making more of these babies. This clog will go in the wash more another minute or two to shrink it just a bit more. I think it's still one size off.

nice save on the sizing error!

I think I even like them better felted than knit.
