The gift knitting is done


I felted all six pairs of Fiber Trend Clogs today, and let me tell ya, Paton's Merino shrinks fast! Luckily I went up to the laundry room and checked them earlier than I had planned. They were done, and the size small I made for my mom look tiny! She does have little feet, so I hope they fit!


I also got a pile of soap socks, and a bunch of dishcloths knit, too. I'll have to show pics after I gift them, though, just in case a recipient is reading. ;)


I took pictures of the before felted, and merged them with pictures of the after felting. Fulling, shrinking, whatever! All y'all know what I mean. If you look at the little lamb on the slippers, you can see the difference in size. It would have been easier if I had taken the pics from the same distance, but in some I got closer, and with the camera problems I've been having, I say these pics are a-ok!


I need a new camera again! I am a machine-breaker! Really, I shouldn't even be touching the computer! On Friday, I killed the blow dryer, on Saturday I killed the mixers, and today, I broke the tv. Again. *sob* Thank goodness for a hubby that fixes things. I can't break the computer, though, he needs to do some more homework. It's hard getting on this machine, since he started college classes, but I know it'll be worth it when he's doing a job he loves. Especially if it involves extra money for yarn. hehe


Ok, gotta run. Hubby The Student has work to do.


Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!!!!
ps I posted the stats on the clogs here. :)

Those clogs look wonderful! I'm going to have to start my gift knitting early next year and make a couple of people a pair of those. They're sooo neat!

You've been crazy productive - putting my paltry Xmas knitting to shame.

I'm soooooo impressed that your gifts are done already (and what a relief you went down and checked on them when you did).

Well done!!!

That number of clogs is truly amazing, and I'm glad you used a yarn that I actually have some of! This means I can make a pair, after I buy that pattern, that is, for DH and anyone else wandering by who wants one. You've answered many questions that the two marbles in my head have ground against for a couple of years. Thanks!
