Fiber Trends Clogs - The ULTIMATE RESOURCE
Since it seems like so many of us are knitting these now, I thought I'd do a KAL. Amp, Ingrid and myself are the ones I know who are working on it for sure... I think Ingrid is waaaaay past where amp and I are though!

I thought this coul dbe an ongoing KAL... so just join when you can. I'm making 5 pairs for Christmas presents, and I think KK is making a million pairs for Christams presents, so someone will always be knitting these, at least for the time being.

I'm going to post links here, too, to the other threads on the forum that deal with the F.T. clogs. (just not tonight, because i actually want to get past row 5 before bedtime), and links to places online that sell the pattern. (agin, not tonight)

Anyone who's making them, please join in! People who have made them before, please frequent this post to help us clog virgins when we have problems.

Advice I got from KK:

It will start looking like a clog soon after you switch to the second color.

I can't find my tapestry needle, so I couldn't finish the second clog last night. I put it in a safe place but the cat thinks it's her responsibility to knock all small things on the floor and hide them under the couch. I'm a little anxious about felting, but I'll do these before I make the other, larger 2 pairs I'm going to make.

Hilde, youre not going to beleive me! I don't know what got into me last night but I just kept knitting and knittting..... :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:

And before I knew it I had a clog in my hands. :XX: I casted on for the second sole and knitted the first row. I looked up at the clock and it was 7am (my time)

It sounds more crazy than it really is. My husband is a police officer that works night shifts so I often will stay awake all night and sleep during the day with him. :zzz:

I am so proud of myself. I can't believe I actually did it! Yeah me!!!!!

The Clog is by Fiber Trends and, unfortunately, its not a free or downloadable pattern. Check your LYS or there are online vendors that will mail it to ya.

omg amp that's awesome!!! My husband works second shift, so I knitted until about 2am then went to bed, and a bit more this morning. I finished the "extra rows" part and now i'm working on the right colum of directions. DH goes "that doesn't look like a clog to me!" So I folded the sole down, and he's like WHOA!!!! I'm so gald this thing is symmetrical.

Ingrid, my cats took my row counter last night It was under the couch. They must be in cahoots with your cat!
