FOs-clogs, soaker
these are before and after pics of clogs i made for my dad. I was scared i felted them TOO much so i had DH put them on for the pic. If his big old feet can fit, then my dad will fit too i used Patons classic merino,on sale! i love that yarn...


the soaker, is a slightly modified curly purly soaker pattern ( i was too lazy to do her pretty ribbing pattern) Yarn is 3 ply worsted merino from 100purewool in 'firebrick' (color was more plum-y than i expected, but worked anyhow) I needle felted the holly/berries on the butt and added an eyelet row on the legs to put a ribbon through for the christmas party on the 24th


Thanks for looking!

Great job on both. I have the Patons merino to make clogs but just don't seem to get around to starting them. Love the holly berries on the soaker
