A few weeks ago my dad arrived at our house with a shelving unit for our garage. After filling it full and realize we needed
one a few more shelves, we headed to the hardware store… where we also found a 5 gallon bucket of mis-tinted paint for $20. So for about the price of a sushi dinner, we spent a weekend painting and organizing our garage and it is GORGEOUS! As part of the organizing venture, I commandeered an entire shelving unit to use for extra kitchen gadgets and my crafting gear. Part of that crafting gear includes a couple bins of yarn, which I decided to sort through and organize as long as I was in the mood.
I found a lot of interesting items in those bins like some nice yarn I’d forgotten about! I also found several knitting projects that are just a few rows short of being finished. I’m not sure what I was thinking not finishing them. Amongst the rubble I discovered a pair of felted clogs I started about 3-4 years ago for my husband’s Christmas gift (oops). I spent maybe an hour finishing these and 20 minutes of that was felting them in the washing machine. From what I can recall of the pattern, it’s pretty simple even though it looks complicated on paper. I was a fairly new knitter when I made these so they aren’t difficult at all.
The slippers felted up beautifully! My husband is pretty excited to get a little winter warmth surprise! The pattern is Fiber Trends Felted Clogs by Bev Galeskas and the yarn is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. They were knit on a size 15 needle.
