Thanks! Strangely I didn't have to do anything! I put the giant unfelted clogs in two lingerie bags (1 in each) and toss them in with very hot water, a little detergent and a pair of old jeans on a fairly low water level. I check every 10 min or so. Don't ask me how long it took... I don't remember.. They came out just about the right shape. I put them on my foot each time to test the size. I have a friend who said you should wear them around when they are done to help shape them, but wet, felted clogs were icky so I didn't and they were fine.

Great work, Jan! I've never tried the felted clogs, but you are inspiring me to get with it! They look so nice, AND USEFUL, too!

Thanks everyone!

Dollyce, they were fun to do and pretty quick. As fast you knit you'll have them done in couple days.

I will say that the yarn I used felted great, but it's not particularly soft. Also the double sole feels cushy at first, but gets crushed pretty quickly. This of course doesn't make them less beautiful or less useful, but thought I'd give my thoughts. Does anyone know if some wools are softer when felted than others?

ETA: I should also add that I have sensitive skin plus some nerve damage in my feet that causes problems. The yarn used for mine should be perfectly fine for normal skin.
