|Our washer/dryer does NOT do a good job fulling the slippers! Patons Classic Wool in Peacock with Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool in Nature's Brown, Patons Classic Wool in Harvest with Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool in Brown Heather|
Pro tip: Don't fly with a head cold. Seriously. Really, don't do anything with a head cold. I managed to leave a cord from my interchangeable set at my in-law's so couldn't finish the clogs I was working on during the plane ride and couldn't do anything else. I knew my gauge would be off and following a pattern would result in multiple rips and re-dos. Then I thought I lost my travel scissors, but I apparently put them in the pocket next to where they are supposed to go, so couldn't finish the cuff of the clog I was working on.

Timeframe: November 7, 2014 - January 4, 2015
Mods: I use Judy's Magic Cast-On to start the soles because I hate seaming.
Problems: None, love this pattern!
In the two prior pairs of clogs I made for myself and my husband, I added a third sole for more warmth. Looking at other pairs of clogs I made, it seems as though our clogs have worn through much more quickly. We might use them more often, but we've worn through two pairs while my in-laws are still on their first with minimal wear! I decided to just make the two layers to see if friction from the third layer actually makes them wear out faster.
