Pre-felted objects always make me laugh. I don't know if you can tell how really huge this clog is (about 16" long) Hopefully after it is shrunk, it will be closer to size of the store bought one next to it. Gauge in not really as important in felting as in regular knitting, but it was far enough off from the pattern that I had to switch to the next larger size needle, especially since I want a very thick fabric with no stitch definition. Seems to be the right proportion now. The only hold up--not enough dark brown yarn to knit the mate. There's little chance I will find the same dye lot since I bought this yarn last summer in Colorado. Good thing this clog has a double sole. I can use any color I want to make the inner sole and no one will know but me.
