I started my first pair last night. these directions are tough to read on that blue paper!
after tearing out and starting a couple times, I got the sole done and i'm about to start the main color of the clog.
I'm using some random wool that i have in my house. a reddish color is stuff that i bought to double up and knit a poncho years ago. i made a caplet, but didn't like how it turned out, and i still have TONS of this wool left.
then i have a natural brown wool that my mom gave me last year. she bought this stuff when i was little. it's really scratchy stuff. i can't even find anything about the wool company anymore, so i had no idea what i should use it for.
knit up a swatch with teh two held together, felted, and the color is nice and the felted result is REALLY thick and smooshy!
i'm worried about felting them before i give them to her, not knowing my daycare lady's shoe size....but, i also don't want to give them to her unfelted, worried that she'll never felt them. i also wanted to see about doing a caulk sole for her on the felted product.
we'll see what i end up doing.
