A Quick FO
When my friend Jane lamented that her new wood floors might make it so she needs slippers more often, I told her I'd make her some felted clogs. I did warn her I'd use what I had in stash so they could be a little "wild".
I checked out my stash and actually had a nice color combination - the top is Cascade 220 Heathers and the sole is using Ella Rae Classic. I didn't have enough of the dark blue Ella Rae so I took a skein of dark and skein of light blue and held them together - it gives a rather marled effect which is perfect for the soles.
Jane's foot is size 7 - the Fiber Trends Pattern is written for size 6 and size 8. I made the size 6 and put them on my size 8 foot - it was snug on me so I'm hoping perfect on her.
Now to get them to dry is another story - it has rained so much here it is humid. I'm keep them on top of the dryer while I do laundry - at least that might help speed the process.
I hope she likes them!
