I got a set of the Denise interchangeable neddles and have been trying them out. They are GREAT I love them.

To start with my new slippers (on the left) and my husbands prior to felting. They are the fibre trends clogs, and SO warm. (it's winter here atm)

Secondly a Panta made with left overs from my clogs.

Then i made a pair of Fetching from knitty.

And lastly, not on my new needles, my first sock, using opal yarn, and the universal toe up sock pattern from knitty. Only problem I have had is now I have finished the first one the cast off is too tight. even after casting off on needles 3 size bigger. Any ideas?

Those clogs look really comfy! I also like your sock yarn.

If you are having trouble binding off you can try the elastic bind off. I found this in the book Domiknitrix. Knit one, pass it back to the left needle. Knit 2 together and pass back to the left needle. Repeat  until all the stitches are bound off.
