This is how they started

In 2008 at the Men 'sFall Knitting Retreat I saw a pair of these from one of the guys and I knew I had to make one for me. These are mostly Alpaca yarn (the green), the sole is mohair, Paton's Classic, Cascade Eco Wool.

Andy they came out great! I, too, love the colors you chose. You've inspired me to knit a pair!

Andy... I have made over a dozen pair and finally knit some for myself... I cannot take them off! They are freakishly warm, comfortable to the point of swearing off all other footwear, and, unfortunatly lend themselves to having everyone you know ask for a pair.

When you get them on your feet and the conform to only your feet you will know what I mean.

Thanks for all the mystery boxes, and the components for the horse barn that you sent. I still have a way to go on that one but I have to say you have one hell of a plantation going on! Oh,, and I hope you have enough support for the new chicken coop! Let me know and I will send or have it sent. And just how many chickens can one support in the new coop?

Chris I have to agree with you these are so comfortable is not even funny. Still wet I wished they were dried. I did try them on once or twice while felting and they got a liking to one foot or another, so they have a little curve on the arch of the foot.

Chicke coop, goodness, how many famrs can we have, I appreciate all the helpo and ditto to you.

If everyone else keeps coming up with really nice looking clogs, I may have to get over my aversion to felting and actually make a pair. [Not that I have anything against felting...I just have an aversion to ME doing it.] -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Sorry, Albert. Even those words do not help me get over it...I just think "yuck" instead of "YUCK". Maybe I can bribe my local LYS owner to throw a pair into her next batch of felting projects. Only problem...checking for fit. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

They came out great Andy! I actually have one finished (and felted) and one still on the needles. I just wanted to be sure they'd felt/fit right before knitting the 2nd. Actually the easiest felt I've ever done (in and out in 20 minutes, using Patons Classic Merino.)
Chris is right: they're so comfortable that I can't resist wearing the one that I have finished! Lol! Ridiculous I know, but I should have the 2nd done by this weekend :)
