The Fiber Trend Clogs are knit and felted. What fun these were - and so fast too. I am not a fast knitter, but I finished them over the weekend - 2 days! I can't wait for them to dry so they can go on my little footsies. This pattern was so well written - it was clear and easy to understand.

I used Classic Merino by Paton's. Although I cannot wear wool garments (itchy and rashy), somehow on the feet it seems okay.

Ceci,
I checked out your blog and the clogs are wonderful!! I really would like to make some! I will have to see if my LYS carries the pattern. I have done a lot of felting of purses, but never clogs, with with fall around the corner and winter coming they look perfect for my cold toes!!
Thanks for sharing!!

Nice job, Ceci. They look great. Of course you should make matching ones for your husband!

Great Job! They are such a easy knit and so warm to wear. I have a couple of pair on my to-do list for Christmas presents.

They look great. Thanks for sharing the pic and the experience.

I've been wanting to make these forever! In fact, I had been considering these for Xmas gifts this year for several people.
It was great to hear your hubby wanted a matching pair. Usually my knit gifts are only for the women I know. I would love to find something for the men too (none of them really wear socks, scarves, or hats...So.Calif). You've confirmed that this is the project for me this year! A few pairs of matching his/hers clogs for a few couples I know. I love felting so this will be just perfect. Fun fun fun!

I just picked up the pattern at my LYS and have the yarn ready, but have to say I am a little nervous. The pattern looks a little complicated (I am a very new knitter.....) I may be back often for help and encouragement!! But, I am very excited and can't wait to get started!

This pattern can be addictive. Just follow the instructions even when they don't seem to make sense and you will be fine. Really. And felting obliterates minor goofs. Ask me how I know...

Thanks to all for your encouraging comments. I was reading on the KAL (on another board) that some people are using a non-skid coating for the bottom called Plasti Dip. It can be found at Home Depot, comes in clear, is supposed to be flexible and can be painted on the fabric. My plan is to try it on my pair to see how it works.

For anyone who is thinking of knitting this - it really is easy. The pattern only looks complicated because all the short rows are written out. I am not a real seasoned knitter - so if I can knit it, you can too!

My copy was on dark blue paper so I scanned in the pattern as a text file, reduced the color so the background was white, then enlarged it so I could see the darned thing! I then highlighted the stitch count for my DH's size (mine is ladies small, so there was no issue there). I also took a sticky note and used it as a line marker so I could keep my place.

JARlady - go for it!! You can do it!! And so can anyone else who is hesitating. Have fun ~

Finishing your first pair of Fiber Trends felted clogs is definitely a kick! Mine were also my first felting project, and I was so delighted that I showed them to EVERYONE (esp. since I posted photos here!) Be forewarned, they will not be your last pair! They are addictive!

Your clogs look great! I've been looking for a more sturdy slipper/house shoe and these fit the bill. Congrats on your FO!

Thanks, y'all. I am almost finished with my DH's matching pair. Darn, if I hadn't had to work all weekend (in between services right now) they would be finished. Work sure puts a damper on my knitting!! Thankfully the repertoire is good today.

I am hoping to finish (just the outer sole and attaching with the bumper are left) and maybe even felt tonight....

I love the his and hers thing. Life always slows my knitting down. Geeze!

Ceci,
They look great!! I had to FROG my first pair, and haven't had the time to try again. I know I will love them! Thanks for sharing your photos... my hubby really wants a pair now!! (He hasn't been real keen on carrying any of my purses...so it will be nice to knit something he can use!!)
