They're still a bit damp, but I wanted to share.  I am really happy with how easy they were.  I'm not a huge fan of how scratchy wool can be, so the clogs were a good alternative.
I would have modeled them, but since I knew my sister also lurks on the board I opted for the floor only.  I just couldn't deal with her, "You've got big ankles" one more time...

I know a lot of people say that wet wool smells like wet dog, but I disagree.  All I smell is a home perm.  I think it's far worse than any poor dog could ever smell.  It just brings back bad memories.  Oh the burning.

Thanks!   I found the pattern in the book Knit Two, Felt One.  It had a ton of felted slipper patterns for the entire family.

Well, it takes someone you love to tell you that you do have big ankles (can't wait to see you pregnant  Wink). They look awesome! Do they stay on your feet okay? That would be my only concern.

Love ya!

I went and changed it!  I told mom once that I was horrible at spelling.  She said, "But you were so good in grade school."  Who isn't with words like "grab" & "common"?

Anyway, they do stay on the feet.  You can't just slide in, you do have to pull the back semi-heel up.  I think I'm going to wash the right clog one more time.  Just for a better fit and a heavier clog.

those look really cool!

so i have a dumb question... are they meant to be worn just as house shoes, or did you add something to the bottom so they could be worn outside?

where are we going, and why am i in this handbasket?

Just around the house.  I've heard of people putting fabric paint on the bottoms to stop sliding on hardwood.  I didn't notice a huge slipping problem, so I'm skipping that step.

I want to make the clogs from Fiber Trends that come with the thick bottoms.  Add that to my list!

Um...do you mean "Knit One, Felt Too"? I looked for the book on the internet and that's what came up. It looks like a really cool book!

I love your fuzzy clogs. Great color combo!

Yes!  That's the book, sorry.
