    A Valentine's gift for my almost 12 year old son. He requested a pair, watched me make them and was very excited about the felting process. We laughed really hard when we put both of our feet into one of the unfelted clogs.

    They are from the book shown in the photos. Done in the Adult Medium, on size 11 dpns knit just like socks. I used Lamb's Pride worsted-I always like how it felts up. 2 wash cycles.

    The boy is thrilled. :hahaha:

    Thought you'd enjoy a before and after shot.

    Wow, those are so awesome! I bet he's thrilled. Did you pick the colors, or did he? Felting looks so cool. :D

    Nope, our library doesn't carry that book.

    Where did you get it from? I'd love to add it to my collection.

    Papa picked the colors as I sent him to the yarn store for me. I believe I picked up this book at one of my local yarn stores, I have 2 that have a very large selection of books. I bet you could get it at Amazon too.

    Those are beautiful! I love how they came out. Lamb's Pride felts sooooo beautifully.

    They've been on my to do list for quite some time too...:rolleyes:


    I looooooooove the yarn you dyed in your sig. I'm trying not to look too closely. Must not buy, must move soon...
