Bug’s Felted Clogs


So, the next pair of felted clogs were for Bug.


I used a strand of fun fur style yarn around the ankle just for some little girl like interest. Since my hot water heater was already turned way up for the fleece, I decided to felt them today so I could then turn it back down, now that one entire fleece has been washed. The first trip through the laundry yielded slippers that were still too large for her little feet. This was no surprise really because I did knit adult size slippers for her. However, I did think I could felt them down enough to make them work. After the first trip through the washer, I started to second guess myself. I sent them through the washer again and took a nap because hey, I am on vacation! When I got up, I had slippers for Bug that were too small. Go figure. However, I stretched and stretched them with her help and now they fit. Jeremy’s experience with his slippers is that they do stretch out a bit while wearing them as well, so I am trusting that these will fit Bug well enough in the end.
