Have you ever made the Fiber Trends clogs? They are a unique gift, and they knit up pretty quick. I've made a bunch of pairs, so I'm used to the pattern now, but my last pair I knit up in less than a week.

I agree - the clogs are awesome! I think it took longer to get them dry than it did for me to even knit them up!

There's always bulky yarn and big fat needles if you get down into the clutch...*whistles innocently*

I fourth the clogs idea! Every loves them and they really aren't hard to knit up. As someone else said they take longer to dry than to knit!

Is there a picture or a pattern somewhere on the net for these clogs? I haven't seen or heard of them.

Haven't heard of the clogs??!!!! :o :o
You can search this forum and find more information than you want to about those clogs!
OR I'm certain you can google Fiber Trends Clogs and find tons of links.

Well, if it's not a flat piece of fabric, I probably haven't heard of it, scaredy cat knitter that I am! I did do a search and got a peek at those clogs...they are cute! They're really not hard to do? :thinking:
