Hildie has FOs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom's froggy clogs (I hope she doesn't log in before Christmsas--I mean, I hope she DOES< but I hope she ignores this!) in WOTA mulled wine and hollyberry. I had a clog crisis (http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1188&start=690) but I fixed it, and you can't even tell what the crisi was by the picture (so if you want to know, read my blog!)

The clogs were ALSO made with cat hair and tissue lint, from the towel and jeans (respectively) I threw in to help them felt. ROCK ON! :rollseyes:


The marsupial-inspired tote--in lamb's pride super chunky (or whatever it's called) in "strawberry fields". I took the basic idea of the SNB pattern (flat bottom, PU around edges, RT at corners), and about halfway up I started decreasing right before the RTs, and it made the bad round/bubbly shaped. this was for my secret santa at school (yes, it WAS still damp when I gave it to her!!!) and she LOVED it! It was definitly THE gift of the secret santa swap :cheering:


** edit: removed a big ole picture of the bag. Wil try to make it smaller.
I have a scrunchable scarf FO but DH keeps WEARING IT (the nerve!) so I can't take a picture yet!!!!

Those are great, Hilde!! I'd better not let DD see them, or she might sneak out and swipe them from under your tree!!!

Did you see the embellished clog samples @ Wool & Co.? They had frogs, bunnies and SNAKES! Oh my!
