Clogs (which Lead to Socks, of Course)

I love clogs.

And Damian loves my clogs. Don’t ask me why. He’s just that way.
Lovely lovely shoes and a lovely lovely cat
Here he is with my Hanna Andersson flower clogs.

I also just bought this great pair of orange boiled wool clogs from Keen. My feet are very, very happy.

When the rains start up, I slip into my leather and rubber clogs from Lands’ End. They have thinsulate linings that really keep the tootsies toasty.

One of my sock heroes is Stacey of On and Off the Needles. Check out Turkish Delight. She also designs her own patterns—look at Nomi’s Socks and Heart Crook Socks, for two glorious examples. Her pieces just take my breath away. With only two pairs of socks to my own credit, neither in colorwork, I’m a long ways off from this, but I look at what she’s done and think, “someday…”

Now that the weather’s cooling off, maybe it’s time to pull out my copy of Socks for Sandals and Clogs. It will take a bit of courage, but I expect the results will be worth it.

    I took a class from Anna Zilboorg and had a great time. I kept thinking how Zen she is about her knitting and desiring that for myself. Good luck with the socks. Oh how I do love clogs.
