Some Christmas Knitting

Actually, there was one command Christmas gift for family. Mom wanted felted clogs for Logan. I made him a pretend pair two years ago as a novelty gift (they matched the ones I made for his mom). But it's time for him to have a real pair of his own.

I was trying to adapt the adult size pattern, when it occurred to me: maybe someone had already done the work to create a kid's version. Huzzah. And the result:

I put the compact disc case in there for scale. Aren't they adorable? They knit up quickly, and felted very fast. The upper is some Lopi I bought at Halcyon, the bottom is "lilla lovikka (Alafoss Lopi)" -- which looks like someone found a warehouse full of Lopi and stuck a different label on it.

I finally got the adult Fiber Trends pattern to make clogs for my brother & sis-in-law (who were jealous of the felted 'paca slippers I made for their kids). And since there were no slippers forthcoming in my stocking, I may have to make some for myself, too.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday.

Those slippers look great - I bet Logan loves them, eh?
