I’m working on Felted Clogs made Easy using Cascade 220 in purple with soles in a variegated purple/hot pink for some contrast. I have finished the two tops, now working on the soles. The pattern mentions the option of making 4 soles instead of just two to have thicker, warmer, more comfortable clogs.
I’m working on the first sole. The yarn that I am using is variegated, and I intended it to contrast with the solid yarn of the top. Seeing the pieces in this photo makes it pretty obvious that there isn’t much of a contrast, perhaps because when knitting with two strands, you lose some of the variegation? Wish that had occurred to me earlier! The little swatch is a less exciting shade but shows more contrast. I had intended to make that the inside layer of the sole, so now I may put it on the outside instead.
Gratuitous photo of new grandson, wearing the pumpkin cap I made (just to make this knitting related).
