On the Needles on Black Friday, 2012

On the needles this week is a pair of socks which I am working two at a time, toe up. They have been on the needles a long time, as I started them on a camping trip last year, packed them away to come home and then……forgot about them!  After working the clogs in a double strand of worsted weight yarn, sock weight seems to take soooooo long.

Meanwhile, I did finish knitting and assembling the clogs. I still need to felt them, but will have to borrow someone’s top loading washer for that. Here they are, along with the left over yarn.

Hmmm, I’m sensing a theme here.  Do you suppose I might like purple??

Stop in at Patchwork Times for more knitting inspirations.

I am leaning towards purple too. Can hardly wait to see the clogs felted.

Isn't it sacrilegious to knit on Black Friday?:_

I have a pair of purple socks exactly like yours. :)
And I have a pair of lime green felted clogs. I need to make another pair. The hardest part for me was the felting. Scary Larry!!!
Hope you can get in a few stitches.

I love your purple clogs. I have a started pair of socks with a yard that looks just like that! I would love to know what pattern you use for clogs. I'm assuming you make them big then felt them down to the size of your feet?? This sounds like fun. Do you put a sole of any kind on them?
