Oh, darn!

This is what I found when I took off my shoes the other day. It's the first time this has happened. These are just over a year old, the Amble pattern from SixSoxKnitalong. The yarn is Jaeger Matchmaker merino, and I decided not too long after I'd made them that it would have been better to have used a size 0 needle instead of the size 1's I used. A firmer fabric would probably have been more durable. A closer look revealed that just one strand of yarn broke, so I latched up the escaped stitches and duplicate stitched/Kitchenered the loops. Ta daa! And just so you can see that there are two whole socks ...


There is another pair of felt clogs finished, and another in the works. Also working on several other Christmas gifts.

Hey, I'm on my second pair of clogs, even if I haven't finished felting the first ones! I love making them. And I made a felted purse. Well, it's still unfelted, too. I'll get there.
