Wrap Up

I'm glad you all liked my clogs. Holly, dude, it's just the Fiber Trends pattern. I felted them to the utter limits and I think that's why they look nice. And the rug backing idea came from my friend Holly, whom I've written about before on this blog. She's one smart cookie and I miss her since we don't hang out anymore.

I whipped up a quick little project, Calorimetry from Knitty:

I used a skien of handspun that I received from Jenny in exchange for a Fiber Fish Pattern. The yarn is very artistic, lots of thick and thin spots, some slubs and variations in color so it works very well for such a simple pattern.

I modified the pattern because I don't like how fat the original is. Also, since my yarn is different, I used a different needle too. I cast on more stitches than what the pattern called for and did less short rows. So I have a longer, narrower band. It's even a little too long, but this is easily fixed by the fact that each short row makes a hole which can be used as a button hole.

Anyway, I've got good ear coverage, which is what I really needed:
I hope you all have an enjoyable and safe New Year's Eve.
