That's it; I'm totally going to have to make a pair of these suckers. I'm tired of my feet being cold when I walk around the house. Wearing my Crocs just isn't cutting it since they are filled with holes and it's cold in our house. :)

A couple of followup comments.
I used the Fiber Trends felted clog pattern. Purchased it directly from their website.
It took almost a week for the clogs to dry after felting. It was like waiting for paint to dry or water to boil!
:fingerwag: Word of warning: once dry the soles of these suckers are SLICK on hardwood floors. I have to put some sort of grip on the bottoms or learn to skate through my house.
The color combo is great--believe it or not they match my bathrobe. HOWEVER, the black wool shred on the pink wool during felting and left a kinda of grey fuzz on it. I'll have to "shave" em or something to perk up the pink.
All in all, these are such a fun and easy project. The whole family gathered around the washing machine to watch the felting process! Hey, what can I say:shrug: Out in the country you take entertainment where you can find it!

Great job on the clogs and very entertaining presentation!

:cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

I was surfing yesterday and came across an on-line yarn site that sold the yarn for the clogs in pre-determined color combinations...now I can't remember where I saw this. Anyone come across the shop?

They look great! I love that you made a little pictorial to go with it.

I just got the pattern in the mail today, and can't wait to start making these. I'm wondering, did you use the yarn called for in the pattern, or will something else work as well?

ah! They look great! Love the adventures in felting! I'm (someday) going to make some but need to make one sole thicker (I'm lopsided :) ) Someone told me to knit 3 soles for the one foot then rather than 2...I haven't even looked into this yet, but does that make sense?
