View Full Version : First clogs
02-20-2007, 12:30 PM
I finished my first pair of clogs over the weekend. They are for my son and are a children's large. They were so much fun to make. I was surprised how quickly I was able to finish them. But they took forever to dry. They were still damp after two days, so out of desperation I actually put them in the microwave this morning! :shrug: That worked but I think they shrunk a little. I'll try the fan idea on the next pair.

:teehee: @ microwaving clogs
Ya know, when I was a kid my Dad once had a wee bit too much to drink and jumped into our neighbors pool with all his clothes on during a backyard barbeque ... he then proceeded to microwave his wallet contents to dry them out, which caught fire and destroyed about $40 in cash. :roflhard: Anywho, ya just reminded me of that story.

No free pattern. But here's where I ordered mine.

I just received TODAY, the Fiber Trends pattern, looks weel worth the $5.00 it cost!!
Now I just have to get the blasted vest I'm working on finished so I can strat!!
I'm starting my first pair of Fiber Trends felted clogs as well. I'm so excited! I am a tight knitter and have gone up a size for other things. Should I use a size 15 ( It calls for a 13 ) or doesn't it matter as much for felted items? Thanks!

I don't think it will matter on these, just go with what it calls for. They are going to be really big anyway, then you can get them to the right size when you felt them.

Your clogs came out Perfect!!!! :cheering: :cheering:
I really like the colors, I might have to make a pair in those colors!! I've made 5 pairs, one for me and the rest for my nephews I still have more to make I was giving them as presents. But after making so many right after each other I got burned out on clogs.
