FO - Holiday Clogs/Slippers

I know that I try to be in bed by 9pm. But, when you finish knitting something that needs to be felted and it is 8:30 ... you take the advantage of your forward motion and just get on it. According to all the "reviews" of this pattern once a person starts to wear these clogs they mold to ones feet. I can't wait to see if this is true or not.

Project Details:
Plymouth Yarn Galway Highland Heather (all gray color). It was $6.50/skein and took a total of 4 skeins to make the slippers. With the speed at which these are made I'm worried I might get into a knitting slipper frenzy! Started August 23rd and finished August 28th (late - but still the 28th when I finished). Size 15 needles were used for the gauge it required. I'm felting to match current slippers that my hubby wears. Felting time in the washing machine was 35 minutes.


Post Felting

The slipper that is next to the felted ones in this photo is the size I was trying to match. I believe they will be the right size - but the hole is a bit higher than on his normal pair. I hope he doesn't mind.
