I did make a new pair of felted clog slippers (Fiber Trends) for my son, his spider man slippers wore and he was demanding I buy him another pair which of course I'd never find those particular ones again. So I told him last night that I'd make him a pair. I used 2 skeins from Knit Picks, Wool of Andes , 1 blue bonnet and 1 stream (which is more like a tealish type of green) , double strand throughout. The double soles I used the blue bonnet on one and stream on the other, so he can tell which goes on which foot.... I finished them this morning and felted them today for him, He was so happy and proud of them!!! ;o))) He defiantely is mommies best customer!!!

Oh back to spinning more of something.......
