View Full Version : My first sweater and my first FT clogs

I finished these some time ago, but I've been a bit lazy with the picture taking. :rollseyes:

My very first sweater is Samus from Knitty in Encore Worsted Cranberry. The sleeves are too big (too roomy), but other than that, I'm very pleased with the sweater! I wear it a lot in my 'puter room when I get chilly.

The FT clogs are knit with WOTA and a wee bit of another yarn, the name of which esapes me...gah! Anyway, they're fuzzy and wonderfully cozy! The bumpers are a bit wonky, but that's okay. My next pair will look better!

:cheering: Hooray! Though I'm disappointed we didn't get to see the Samus on you. It looks great! How was the icord thing? That's what stops me from trying that one.

Oh the i-cord thing isn't hard at all--just tedious! But I will say that you have to go about it at a funny angle or else it turns in rather than pops out. I learned that by knitting mine incorrectly! ;)

My next Samus will look better and will fit better. Two arms can fit in those sleeves! :shock:

(adds Samus to ever growing list of want-to-do projects)...

Those are just great. I LOVE the color you chose for the sweater, makes me wish I could wear red.

Way to Go!

That sweater is gorgeous, Angelia! Did you have to sew the i-cord on or was it attached somehow as you made it? The clogs are purty, too!

Those are awsome !!! Very very pretty !!!

Thanks all! :heart:

Jan, it's an attached i-cord--tedious, but makes for a beautiful effect, I think!

Wow! Both are gorgeous. Aren't you totally in love with your FT clogs? I've got mine on right now :)

:D both are GORGEOUS :cheering: :cheering:

It's too too hot here to wear the clogs--don't want to stink them up before winter ;)

They are divinely soft and cushy, though, and I can't wait to wear them. Oh, and the DH now wants a pair! :thumbsup:
