Another handmade gift.

That is a picture of my foot, just to show you how big these are before felting, it just never fails to amuse me. :-)
One pair down and three more to go, four more if time permits and I am not mumbling in my sleep about slip one, knit 23, ssk, wrap and turn....

Looks like they belong to The Great Sasquatch!

It is amazing how large the clogs are before felting and even more amazing is how cozy, comfy wonderful they are when felted. Happy knitting!

Are you serious? I know nothing of knitting or felting and I am baffled that those are going to shrink to fit your feet. I'll be waiting to see the finished product.
BTW -- how did those rhodos make out? I'm hoping they will bloom well for you next Spring!

Oh, I just realized that I didn't explain that very well. Those are actually the large men's size of the pattern. I just used my foot to show a comparison. They will felt to about a man's size 12 or 13. My foot is about an 8.
You know, so far so good for the rhodos. I meant to post a picture of them in their new home by the brick pathway that we built so that you could see that they were alive and well and know that we appreciated them. But...I somehow didn't get to it and then the leaves fell off the big walnut tree there and it wasn't looking very photogenic. I will post a pic in the Spring when they are blooming. :-) They really went so nicely in the new garden bed we made. Thanks.

Did you felt the hat yet?? I’m so curious what it will look like after felting...
